Puck doesn't glide well

On my air hockey table, the pucks don't slide well. It's not much fun when someone doesn't hit the puck hard to have it get stuck in the middle or slide to a stop. Air is coming out of each of the holes, but it doesn't appear strong enough to elevate the puck.

I felt air leaking from the underside of the air chamber that distributes air to the table..so I caulked all the joints of the wood. Also, I took a drill bit that was just a tad bigger than the holes and opened each one up just a bit. That didn't help either. I've put silicone spray on the table to lubricate it some as well..which helps only a little. I wonder if the fan is just not big enough and perhaps I need to replace it?

Any suggestions?

The problem that you are facing now is that you have made the holes to big for the fan to be able to distribut the air evenly so in turn you will need to get a bigger fan to compinsate for the larger holes, one of the things that we did to get the puck to slide alot better was to apply car polish to the table and the puck, let it dry then shine it like you would to your own car, i hope this helps

Before you go any further have you put the safety inductors across the flux capacitor? If you touch that when it's still charged you could get thrown into the middle of next week.

We plan we are ride in our sisters birthday?Can you you tell me what activities are good and funny when we riding?


A lawn mower is a very serious piece of equipment. It is dangerous and perhaps not the best equipment to consider for a "good" or "funny" riding experience. You may consider piggy back... Much safer and a lot of fun...

Hope this helps you,

I have a geotrax train that is not responding to its remote. I put brand new batteries in it and it still does not work. The remote makes the noise and the red light lights up on top of the train. Is there...


I had the same problem with two of our three engines. I read somewhere that you can get them running by hitting the side of the engine against a hard surface. I can't believe it... IT WORKED! I guess the motor gets **** and hitting it will get it going. All three engines are working now.
