  • Semi automatic pinsetter

    I've had my lane put together and have been playing on it for a few months now, and I am tired of setting each pin by hand. Ultimate goal here to have a fully automatic pinsetter, but for now semi automatic will suffice. Anyone willing to share plans on what they have built? I'm sure I could figure something out eventually comma but why invent mediocrity when you can copy genius?
    I would appreciate any input.

          So, it's been a while since I last posted. In the midst of a busy life I did manage to find time to install my semi automatic pinsetter. From those who have chosen to construct their pinsetters with predominantly would and PVC tubing 4-pin cups, I was curious to know how large the holes have to be for the pins to drop through to get to the Lane. the very top sheet of plywood that I have the whole is two and three quarters of an inch. The board that I'm placing to slide in and out underneath... I am not sure that that would be appropriate because without that sheet dropping them through the holes the pin placement is somewhat sporadic. Does anybody have any insight or suggestions on this?
