  • Kickback Panel installations.

    Went through a center and it needs 16 out of 24 lanes of kickback work! ugh!
    Most are bowed out due to improper installation such as only "screws" at the corners and yes,the screws stick out...duh!
    Wood kickbacks so i can use the nails brunswick sells but can i also put on some contact adhesive to better help hold them on IF i can get the bows out of them that is.
    I also guess i can drill the holes for the nails or will they go through the panels fairly easily?
    Personally,i like panels with the holes in them for an easier job,thse have NO predrilled holes.
    A few are plain ole' broken panels and some of the NEW panels have a space twords the top-rear that seems factory "trimmed" for clearance? Never saw that before on panels.
    1 lane needs a small hole (maybe 3") to be filled,i may try to use a wood chisel and get some hard wood to cut/glue fit into place,okay to do that?
    Thoughts??
    THANKS!! Can't wait to get to do this job...lol.
    Brunswick machines,wood kickbacks,murray lanes,perry austin skidbuster pindecks and...wooden flat gutters most also bad shape.

    Depends on what type of plate it is.
    Plastic - just add more countersunk screws, nails or staples. May only need replaced if broken badly.
    Fibre - peal them off and put on new, repairing wood behind them with maple patches - and make sure it's all flat!
    Phenolic - You might be able to add construction adhesive behind at the loose spots and add (countersink) screws around the perimeter. 4 to 6 across the top, 3 front and back. Phenolics will break easier if there is a void or cupped board behind them, but offer excellent pin bounce.
    I'd only add glue w/phenolics. Fibre's 25,000 nails hold it just fine, and the plastic were intended to have mucho nails or staples.

        That color is canvas phenolic. The fiber plates are gray in color.

          Thanks Ted. Screw type preferred for durability/hardness? I do have a bit i can countersink into the panels with. They have a mix of screws holding them that stick waaay out and...damage the pins..go figure.
          Oh and thanks for the panel brands,have sooo much to do it's like where do ya start at that my head get's mushy at times...lol.

            The phenolic are harder than the rest. This transfers the impact of the pin to the kickback better, but also makes them more brittle and breakable if not flat. The edges becomming loose are the reason they should be screwer around the perimeter. They still may be repairable without replacing them.
