    Bowlmaster (or any Burnswick supplier)until recently. Have been told that we can get a significant discount ($2 or better per roll) by ordering through our local association. Currently looking into it though.

      This is true, ordering through your local association can save you money. If you don't feel like going through them then contact your regular supplier that handles Brunswick parts and they should have it.

        OK thanks guys, but now here is the question can you use standard 3M scotch 810 Tape from eg/ Graingers or is the tape used for Lane Analyzing diffrent?

          I am told that 3m 1 inch wide tape if you can find it works fine. I could never find it.

            Either get tape from the local association or from a parts distributor. The box you get should be a plain white box. About 5 years ago or so, 3m decided to add uv to the tape to make it look "whiter". Well, the analyzer is designed to read that uv and so the tape is too bright to "zero" out. So now you have to order it through bowling because it is made for our purpose.

            I actually use the regular scotch tape to mark the first board.

            Good luck.

              Fed's WAY right on this one ... About two years ago, a batch of "regular" tape somehow got packed in "B" boxes. The expression on my face when the whole lane came up with negative units of oil [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/eek.gif[/img]

              Yeah, it's expensive tape, but getting it through your ABC rep cuts down the cost somewhat. You're asking for headaches trying to use the other stuff.

              Take a regular roll of the 3m stuff and hold it up to your cosmic blacklights, it'll glow real brightly. A roll of lane analyzer tape won't glow at all (or very little). This is how I verified that I had received a bad batch when the machine generated crazy readings.

                Thanks guys, i thought this might have been the case. Its just that we tried the normal tape over here in Australia and thought that it might have just been the batch they sent to Australia that was made diffrent.

                    It can also be purchased from AMF. 294-004-057.
                    They also sell some really nice 1 board markers. Perfect fit on that outside board. 294-110-947.
                    They have an aluminum push rod instead of a wooden one. I broke two of those wooden ones before I bought one. Never broke one again. 294-110-946.

                      Fed - Up is dead on about the tape and uv, etc... And exactly right about using standard scotch tape for the 1 board marker. Saves on marker tape. For those of you who want to try this, just run your first tape across the lane without a marker, use a pencil to draw a short line between the 1 and 2 boards, then pick up your tape. Before you read it - place a small piece of scotch tape on your tape before the 1 board mark. Works great.
