  • Thank you bowl-tech

    So a little while ago I was working on some 8270s as a new pin chaser and had a table jam near the 5 pin, I turned off power to the motors, reached in grabbed the pin by the neck and remembered a post I saw on here about how the 8270 table springs are under a ton of tension and to not clear a table jam with your hand. I decided to clear the jam with a wooden stick (old mop stick or something) instead and when the cups rotated back, they snapped the stick in half, which if I didn't see that post on here, that would have been my arm. So thank you.

    Haha, the first time my boss took me back on a call like this he reached in to grab a stuck pin and told me, "You have to be very careful. These cups will snap and bite you". Sure enough, it bit him pretty good. Then he says, "don't do what I just did."

    I've since learned that it often just requires stopping the table halfway down, then jiggling the cups from the back row...most if not all stuck pins will fall onto the deck, lol.

      Yeah I always teach my new guys, when removing a jammed pin, one hand on the pin one hand on the cups pushing against the force of the spring.

        What do you tell the old guys? "Just reach in there and pull it out, mate. No Worries"
