    Doesn't Brunswick have a life time warranty on this lane system? Must have had a defect at manufacturing to cause this problem so far out from the foul line.

      I think there is. I also have another lane with an identical crack in the same spot, just not as pronounced.

        How old? We have several arrow panels of 20 year old DBA IQ/Brunswick Anvilane with similar cracks and I replaced one of them about 2 years ago because the crack was higher on the pin side and worsening. Subfloor from that section to the pin deck is our original 1963 wood lanes, I believe our heads have HDF underneath.

        We also get those cracks on the approach/heads panel a few inches before the foul line, I have replaced two of those panels in 2 years for that same reason, the crack faced the wrong direction and I didn't want bowlers' shoes to catch on the crack during their slide.

        I don't have a method to repair them. Typically the underside of the cracked panel reveals a spiderweb of cracks in addition to the one that reached the surface.
        Don't let those quick fixes become permanent ones; the job is not done until it is done right.

          Well, they came from another center that closed where I believe they had it been used for maybe 7 years? I'm not really sure though. We've had them installed for roughly 7 years. During the installation the foul lines were moved back about 6 feet so all of the old wood lanes underneath were cut and shifted around. I wasn't there for most of this part but I know it was a lot of work lol

          Worn LBS Rudder Cams

          Can worn LBS rudder cams be rehabilitated? Anyone tried?

          The edges on these are rounded over, which I think is preventing them from maintaining a good latch when...

          Back after 10 years with my mini lane

          Hey guys! After building my lane 10 years ago I had to relocate for work and could not take my lane. It has been in storage ever since. I finally was able to bring it down...

          82/90 table too low at home position and hanging low on back right side

          I am currently having some issues with my lane 5. The table is too low at the home position. This is causing pins to completely fall out when they try to drop into the pin cups...

          The AMF dude

          Saw this on the back of one of the machines at work. Looks like something you'd find in a box of Lego's, but it has the old amf triangle logo in the middle, just...
