  • Pin damage Xli edge.

    All 20 pins show the same circle around the pinbelly. I can't find any pin pieces in the pinsetter. Anyone seen this before ?

    Pins possibly hitting turret clutch would leave chips on top of the turret clutch. See Service Manual complaint 46 "Pins Damaged by Pinsetter". in troubleshooting section.

      If this was a Brunswick machine it would be the pins tagging the spoons upon release. But I am pretty sure you have Amf machines, so look at the distributor when it sways from the 3 to 2 pin and see if the head pin is tagging the roller guide on the track assembly. You should see shavings in this area. Also check the pin wheel for burrs.

        I would suspect a pincup would cause that type of damage. Also inspect the trip arm.
        If it can't be fixed with a hammer, try a bowling pin! They're heavier and more surface area for whacking!

          Just to make sure : indeed the pinsetter is a QubicAMF Xli edge ---> no turret clutch and no pinwheel either. I will check the bin area.

            oops sorry. Missed the AMF part. Saw the pin and I've seen it so many times I jumped the gun and assumed. You know what that means. Anyhow, won't happen again. Maybe.

              Those damage scratches are caused by the shuttle straps. When pins are shuttled but not spotted they come back up in get scratched/dented by the sharp bottom edges of shuttle strap.
              We have rounded edges of 7/10 straps and moved forward other bin straps with Great Success.

                we have the 90 xli, had a problem with cuts like that but were a little on an angle, found the problem was coming from one of the lacing pins were broke and bent up and if a pin would stall a little that lacing would catch the pin and cut it, took a long time to find the problem, good luck, hope this might help

                        The damage in the xli edge was caused by a broken bin strap at bin #6 that was cutting into the pin every time the shuttle moved. I also have the shuttle probably a little to much adjusted to the back, oops. Problem solved.

                          check to see if the bottom of your sweeps are missing the plastic capping on the bottom this will cause this wear on the pins
                          also check your overflow chutes sometimes when the pin comes down it will hit the top edge of the pin deflector

                              What is the usual age for everyone's pins? The general age for our pins are around 1 year and that is pushing the limit. Another bowling center in the area can make their pins...

                              Some of my machines, A's, have been marking up pins. They leave small cuts on the bellies and about 1-2 inches from the bottoms. What part of the machine is causing this?
