    This is intriguing thing to have for the foosball table that are covered with glass at top which have no way to get ball if it got stuck. I am sure you can improve the "device" by using the smaller wood and right kind of tools. Again, a intriguing idea.

    ...or go to the root of the problem: Make a"rounder" foosball so it never ceases to roll and become stuck. This can be accomplished using extremely round material and the best right-angle repellant tools from China.

    wow! brilliant!

    you are a hero man. this phenomenal device will save a lot of people who might have back injuries on playing heavy foosball tables.

    salute!

    i will be waiting for the details..

    @eyethforce thanks. but the table is too heavy to use small size wood. if i use steel bars, i will damage the wooden floor and the table leg in the long run.

    but thanks.

    but thanks.

    some kind of introduction. Explain what the
    pedal is for, and why somebody with a foosball table would want one. = ok, sure

    Maybe a picture or two with the whole table and the pedal included. = ok i will

    Does the pedal lift the table? yes
    Do you kick it from the side? step (nearest foot of closest player & gently apply pressure while counting 1,2&3!
    What do the lines on the two long pieces mean? nothing
    Are they there just because you were measuring lengths? yes
    Or do they help with positioning the pedal on the table leg? no

    Step one needs more details. "Connect everything" could mean put it all together into a
    long stick, and hit people with it. no.. i will add complete details later.

    It looks, from your pictures (though they're hard to interpret) like you have some sort of spacer on the end of the long bits wrapped with black tape. = i will provide this asap. the black tape part is where the players step their foot.

    That spacer cannot be the same size as the fulcrum on the bottom. = yes they are bigger. good spot!

    What are the spacer's dimensions? =will provide asap

    In the last picture, are the pads under the table leg just there to protect the floor? =yes and no..1- our floor is not level, 2- yes u can put if you need to protect the floor.

    Or are they part of your pedal? =NO

    this is a simple machine to lift the foosball table to be able to move the ball when it stopped in some areas no player can reach.

    most of the time especially when the table is situated at very flat level floor or not, and if the table is very heavy.. players need to lift the table to be able to continue playing, unknowing this may develop back injury or pain.

    this simple machine provides solution without battery, w/o electric but one player from each side should make it possible to gently apply pressure when stepping on this pedal at the same time by counting "one" "two" & "three".


    about the rest of details how to make this, i will post it tomorrow since i still have to measure or take photo or if i got lucky make a simple video tutorial.


    thanks guys, please follow & both.

    i will post more of my easy to make projects as soon as i have plenty of time.

    i am really grateful for the advise. yes i will edit the steps asap.

    im sorry @kelseymh

    please explain.
    thanks

    You really need some kind of introduction. Explain what the pedal is for, and why somebody with a foosball table would want one. Maybe a picture or two with the whole table and the pedal included.

    Does the pedal lift the table? Do you kick it from the side? What do the lines on the two long pieces mean? Are they there just because you were measuring lengths? Or do they help with positioning the pedal on the table leg?

    please ask me any questions.
