  • Table casting mounting hole worn out by 7 area.

    I have a lane that all sudden the sweep keeps catching the 7 cell when runs by and also the pins way off spot. So I went to flag the table and noticed that the back mounting bolt by the 7 side was pulled threw the table casting, and table crooked. The hole is worn out. Is there anything I can do to rig it to work, or do I need to buy a whole other table casting?

        You could try a very thick flat washer. That might get you by until you can replace the table.

          Yeah, that and a new bolt as the one in the pic appears to be bent.

            I’ve seen some things go wrong over the years but this is a new one for me. I’m struggling to understand how that could happen even if it was a little loose. Might get away with a washer and grind it down so it fits snug in the table slot

              Steel bolts holding an aluminum casting will simply eat into the casting over time if they're loose. Especially when you have forces constantly trying to rock the table as it goes up and down.

              I have a table like that.

              I just used a longer bolt and heavy washer under the hex head. The bolt head does stick out under the table casting but it's secure.

              I have thought of designing an elongated washer that would fit into the pocket and still allow the bolt to move in the slot as needed for adjustment.
