  • Old Mendez, ME-90 pinsetters

    Hey guys! So I have this dilemma. At the fun center I work at they have an old pair of ME-90 Duckpin bowling lanes. They run off of tokens from the arcade. Super simple and all that, however it does not work anymore. It's have issues setting pins, and cycling at the proper times. It has not been touched for a couple years and since I took this job, my boss wants me to get it running. It is insanely old and out dated and honestly I don't think it will ever run again, but I gotta give it my all or it wont sit well with me. I know nothing about these pin setters, and ages ago Mendez was bought out by AMF and AMF can't help with anything. Our corporate office won't let us get rid of this machine but at the same time it won't pour money into fixing it. So basically I just gotta nickel and dime it. Does anyone out there have experience working on these, or any knowledge of them?? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!!

    Pictures might the very least, we might enjoy seeing them.

    At the very least, it might jog someone's memory.

      Try AMFCANADA. 1-866-650-2425 They are the only ones that will fix some of the Mendes scoring parts. And ones they do not they know who can. Worth a shot.
