  • Urethane Foul LInes

    We ordered some brunswick foul lines 84-200365-000 and instead of receiving the fiber types we are used to, we received some urethane (?) foul lines. I called to check on this and I was told that Hogie Lumber had quit making foul lines and these were the replacements.

    Has anyone worked with these new foul lines? How do you glue them into the lane and get the glue to stick--the surface is pretty smooth and it doesn't look like epoxy would stick.

    Epoxy worked on mine put them in 7 pieces 8 days ago, only tape for the re cout was not shure if it stick on the foul line so put it behind on the approach. The UV QDT of AMF is not on the foul line so that doesn't bond. Also the finish after cutting is not that smooth.

      That foul line is ok. It'll have to be routed to the level of the wood, and the sanders don't like to sand them as they gum up their paper. They aren't brittle like fiber, so when they get thin, they'll not break as easy.

        My dad used to have a terrible time with his foul lines, so we tries some walnut wooden foul lines. They have been trouble free for more than 10 years!

          Toon is right, the best is wood, urethane is bad. our amf plastic are ok but nothing to look at. We got some urethane pin spot from somewhere and after putting them in they could'nt sand them without gumming.(no no )

            I have an opinion about wood as well. We put in 72 of walnut about 10 years ago. Many broke up. We found we had to be real selective in the grain pattern for them to endure. The grain has to be tight, and installed vertically.
            Since then, we found something much better, and more available than it was 10 years ago. Its wenge wood. Walnut is softer than maple, wenge is harder. Walnut is dark brown, wenge is black. Nothing glues into a wood slot like wood. Like others have mentioned, neither fiber nor urethane like adhesives. And the resurfacers like the wood as well. It's pronounced 'whengee'.
            I bought wenge wood flooring planks and made them myself since no one makes them to size. You could also order wenge shelving planks from woodworking shops.

              I didn't think about the sanding issue and gumming up the sanding paper. The urethane foul lines are expensive too--I think they cost about $60+.

              I think I will check out a local wood supplier and see if they can get some wenge wood. That sounds like a better solution if I can make the foul lines.

              Thanks to everyone for your input!
