        I suppose I'd be Head Mechanic, but all I know is string-pin pinsetters.

            I checked bowling management because I wear all of the hats except owner/proprietor.

                TheHumanite How long have you been working on them and how are they working out for your center?

                  @Mike Wilson Since 2019. People seem to like them a lot. Tangles can take some time, but they are relatively rare.

                    Some centers around me have those machines, but they are also have a set of extra strings in them to convert to 5 Pin, the view below the main housing shows lots of string! It's interesting to see it.

                        I’d like to see a comparison between the Brunswick strings and the TMS, see which is more cost effective and efficient.
