  • My Mini bowling lane

    Here is a shot of my mini bowling lane. It took 10 days to build/ 16 hour days, 2 guys. It has a semi-automatic pinsetter which makes the game move much faster!

      Re: My Mini bowling lane

      Thanks Rep! It was fun to build and something I always wanted since I was 10. I saw Chad's alley on his website which is, basementbowling.com.
      We e-mailed for a couple months and he gave me the idea. I took down part of a wall in my basement to be able to make it as long as it is. Also have a traffic signal collection, and have to get some of them moved to a new place in the basement now.

        Oh wow, I totally missed this post. Very cool stuff, I'm subbed to Chad on YT as well (I love all the mini-lane projects!). I also for some reason have always been fascinated by traffic lights ever since I was a kid. Don't have any but it was something I always wanted to get into. It seems there's a sizable community out there!

                  Hi guys!

                  My Mini Bowling was made by Diamond Duramid. It is 1/6th scale, and the pins are 2 1/2 inches tall. That's 2 in = 1 ft. I modified it a bit. I cut 2 liter bottle tops and glued them to a cardboard "Moving Deck" and added a Carrom cue. This is it here:
