    Awesome!!! I just love seeing everyone's take on different lane designs and decorations and stuff like that. I believe mine is going to be about 14 feet long in total just because of not having a lot of space in my basement but I just wanna build it so I can bowl already lol.

    Does anyone know if the new half scale pins are still available or if anyone has any used ones, I'd be more than willing to buy them!

              Man, I'm embarrassed...I don't think I have the smarts or the ambition to pull something like this off. If you don't mind me asking, how much moolah did you invest in the entire automation for this?

                I actually don't know the number, as I never kept track. I know it's been 4 years though based on another thread where I posted I was starting the first pinsetter.

                  I have finally gone patent pending on my mini-pinsetter. We are now in the process of developing our production prototype and hope to have it operational in the next 6-8 weeks. Here's the video that gets into some of the nitty gritty of how it works: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F04EvVSm13M&t=16s
