  • Finger latching mech for Bowl Mor machines

    Here are some pictures of one of my 3/4 scale machines that has been fitted with Mr badwrench's idea for a new finger latching mechanism .This machine's latching fin had worn and I could not get it to stay adjusted, I saw his design he posted here on bowl tech and I built one for this machine,was very easy to build.
    I don't think anyone at houses using Bowl Mors would go wrong in using his design if the time comes to fix your latching systems.
    Great idea Mr badwrench and thank you.

      I see some slight differences. Your design might prove more popular than mine. Thank you for sharing.

        If there are any variations it is because of the scale of the machine, But definatly your design and it works fantastic it is very reliable. I hope there is a lot of other candlepin houses out there that use the Bowl Tech site for help and information because there is for sure plenty of experianced people willing to help out on this site.
