The Brunswick A and A-2 Pinsetter has been the workhorse of the bowling industry ever since it was introduced in the late 1950's. We realize the importance of keeping these machines operating at peak performance, for the longest time possible. That's why Brunswick is recommending Precision Pinsetter Service as the exclusive, certified Brunswick A-2 Pinsetter Maintenance School to help you meet your maintenance training needs.

The Certified Brunswick A-2 Pinsetter School is a twelve consecutive day course designed specifically to meet the needs of you’re center mechanic. We explain the theory of operation of the entire pinsetter, including the electrical system, gear box, detector, turret, and all major subassemblies of the machine. Next, we teach you how to remove and repair these major components, including adjustments that make the pinsetter operate as smoothly as possible. And there's nothing more important to a pinsetter as safety and preventative maintenance, which are things we emphasize throughout the course.
