    I see from your profile you work for the Air Force. That would mean you have all the lastest equipment. Why aren't you stripping and oiling daily?

      Like Bicod said daily. If not that the same day EACH week or if you must wait longer just skip it all together at that point to get the most consistant lanes.

        By stripping do you mean taking the conditioner off and cleaning the lane, or sanding the lane down and applying new finish? Stripping (cleaning) should be done daily to protect the lane surface and insure your bowlers don't get crap all over themselves when they are bowling.

          As a rough rule, you should be stripping and oiling your lanes after every 30 games.

          Out of interest how are you stripping and oiling the lanes just now?

            Alastair is on the right track. What do you use to oil, your lanes currently? If you're using a 100 or spray gun, then I could see 2 times a year. But back when those were all the rage, it was still done once a week.

              for the air force I am only a cashier,
              but at nu generation lanes I am a mechanic, we run leagues 6 nights a week.
              when I say strip I mean clean they lanes and let them sit dry over night

                    Why do you have let them sit overnight to dry? Vacuum not working?

                        I am assuming you are doing a clean only twice a year to check on how well the machine is cleaning, if so I would do it 4 times a year.
                        Why yes, we wax them everyday!

                          well we do it once a month, and the machine does not clean properly because everytime we strip suddenly we have back ends again!

                            You should Strip the lanes everytime you run the machine. Fill-up shots are not good for the tranfer brush or smoother pad systems. Besides it only takes a few more minutes.

                            Current lane oils are designed to bond to the lane. this is why you should oil the lanes about an hour prior to bowling. It takes time for the oil to accomplish this. One the same not, the longer the oil sits on the lane the harder its going to be to remove it from the lane.

                              Don't your bowlers complain about the lack of backend? One would reason that after 15 games most of the oil has been pushed into the backend anyway, and whatever is left on the head is full of dust and whatever else may be caught. I couldn't imagine going more than 24 hours in between a complete dressing in my house, the heads would be dry from all the open bowler sliding 3 feet past the foul line.
                              Is "it's broken" an acceptable response?
