Does anyone know the official width of the goal for an 8 foot table?

I was given a used 8 foot table but it was apparently made for the smaller pucks judging by the goal width and really cheap computer-style fan attached to it. I fabricated the attachment of a 542 CFM HVAC-style blower fan to the table and now the full size pucks work very nicely; however, it is too easy for someone to guard the goal. I would like to expand the goal to the official width but surprisingly enough, searches are coming up empty as to what this would be. Does anyone know? Barring this would someone be willing to measure their fancy Dynamo table goal width?

Thank you!

The hand measured width of my 8' Dynamo is 13".

Thank ypu so much! I just measured my goal and it is only just a little over 10 inches - so I have some significant widening to do!

13" is just the width of the goal cutout in the playfield. If you include the area from where the rails start to curve in to the goal, it's closer to 14 7/8".

I have the same problem...the goals are too small. I have been looking for a bigger goal box online with no results. Maybe I just make a wood goal box?

Help!

Thanks!
