  • Well this is a first.

    We all from time to time have one of those “wow I’ve never seen THAT before” moments. Well today was one of those for me when my night tech texts me to say lane 16 is out for the night and I was like wtf for? Then he sends me a photo and it was a moment.

    Ahhhh don’t we all just love moments like these to keep us on our toes. And of course I don’t have a spare, to be honest not a part many would keep on hand.

      Two spotting cup caps clamped around can get you by until it can be fixed.

        I don’t think the caps would hold it together very well when you have the new spring kit on the lane.

            Metal fatigue is my guess There's a keyway near that break area and the sharp corners of the key slot are a weak point where cracks can grow from. Like where most of the table driveshaft breaks originate from.

              A couple of big fat zip ties or hose clamps would get you through until the next day.

                That one dude that lofts his ball half way down the lane & bounces his 16lb ball into the machinery at 25mph. It's that guy. He breaks **** all the time, lol.

                  yeah 100%, it’s probably been on its way out for the past 15-20 years who knows.

                    When you have a full house of leagues sometimes you have to be creative!

                        I was also able to get a machine through league using hose clamps for a break like this.

                              I’ve had a few go like that over the last couple of years. Just comes down to “they don’t make them like they used to”

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