      That is really impressive! Is the sweep made of high impact plastic? That stuff is pretty durable. Looks like you have most of the components working, can't wait to see the fully automatic version and have some balls thrown on it!
      If it can't be fixed with a hammer, try a bowling pin! They're heavier and more surface area for whacking!

        Amazing. I'm not even technically-sound enough to get a wooden manual pinsetter right! LOL Still setting pins by hand These projects are simply amazing, and enjoy following all of your progress. Good luck going forward, your engineering skills are fantastic!

          ...and, blast from the past - Posting a quick note to say that this project, while in suspended animation for quite a while, has *not* been abandoned and i've had some time to actually work on it recently. In the last year, a cheap 3D printer became part of my toolset, and I used it to finally make the first prototype spotting cells for my machine. They look promising, and rev 2 is on the design table as I type this. Anyhow, here's a hastily shot video that gets the point across. Hope to have some more progress videos in a much shorter time frame than the last 5 year gap, but, well, no guarantees.

          Coasterp - It's been awesome watching your 1/2-scale machine come to completion. In some ways that added just enough activation incentive for me to get back to my own project. Thanks!

            Thanks for the kind words but on a side note, I've looked at your project with a lot of envy. Love the respot design. Took me a couple of watches to see what was going on. Hopefully you can do another video which shows a little more detail. Also feel free to contact me at kaiserphil@yahoo.com. Would love to chat mini-pinsetters sometime.

              Deck re-assembled and yet more software written. respot cycle mostly works now! does not yet have all the bits wired up to distinguish between strike, spare leave, or respot-out-of-range error yet; that's next. But good progress for today. New and sexy stuff starts at about a minute in.
