  • Instructomat LED on chassis

    Ok, here are some pics of one of our chassis with the LED for instructomat. We use these LEDs as they come wired complete with bezel and inline resistor for around AU$3.50 : They look good too!

    The red cable from the LED runs to the motherboard, pin #5 on the PC#1 slot. We just drilled a small hole in the board and soldered it (carefully)to the trace.

    The black cable from the LED (with resistor) runs to ground, in this case there is also a diode (N4004) inline as well. Of course any exposed wires like this need to be insulated (I cut off the heatshrink to take this photo). I didn’t wire this one, and I don’t remember having to use a diode on any of the ones I did wire – either way, this works fine.

      My luck ran out - ** Warning Graphic Content **
      Was working senior league (full house) last Tuesday. Was having turn pan issues on lane 18. Reached in to get a pin off the track before ball came up. Got to close to cross conveyor belt. Felt my finger getting grabbed. Pulled back and lost the tip in the lower pulley. If I hadn't might have lost my whole finger. The night shift pinchaser found the tip on shaker board. The surgeon had to snip part of the bone off to be able to sew the skin and meat around the tip of the finger. No, I am not trying to be macho about...

      King tip of the day - Chassis plugs
      I use a wire tie rather than the nuts and U bolts to clamp wires on the C1 plugs.

      It is much quicker to get in if you have an issue - and I had a bad socket today on lane 1

      Just clip the wire tie and you are in

      When finished just re-install a wire tie

      Cleaner Tank Filter Advice
      You can not use the brass filter in the cleaner. Lane cleaners are aggressive and corrodes the brass. It gets ugly real fast. Mike, This is what I do: 2 wraps of teflon tape on the fitting, then I hand screw that into the filter hand tight, Then I snug it with a wrench and channel locks about 1/8 of a turn. For the filter I use 2 wraps of telfon tape and a bead of silicone around the threads at the beginning of the threads. I then screw that into the tank hand tight. It's a low pressure application so there is no need to ...

      XLI Elevator Strips
      Is it important to replace the grey riveted elevator strips? I know without it the elevator has a lot of play. Or is it mainly to dampen the sound.

      DMX512 lighting 101
      I'm once again sorting out and Cosmic Bowling light show that never worked or looked quite right. I am always amazed at what was a 'professional' install, where basic DMX rules are ignored. So, to help inform my BT brothers and sisters, I'll start a thread to help inform. Here's what I've learned over the years. What is DMX512 protocol? DXM lighting protocol is a system of controlling your light show. Used in night clubs, theater and stage productions, landscape accent, and by those crazy folks that put a million lights on their house for the holidays. DMX allows you to remote control intelligent and non-intelligent lighting fixtures. Now days, you can even control DMX from your smart phone. Control of a non-intelligent light fi...
