  • Introduction of the 8270 A

    Fantastic footage of the 8270 A pinspotter. Complete with the chicken wire spotting cups, aluminum fingers and the "all new " plastic bins . For those of us that grew up in centers with the sparemakers, and the "gum drop" approach dowels, this video confirms that the colored dots were in fact used in conjunction with the colored arrows on the masking unit.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Irb-A...eature=related
    There is light at the end of the tunnel - just be sure it is not a train.

            Tablejam: they're black?? Those aren't the same wireway links that we have here??? What's up with that??

            How do the wires travel to the rscells??


            They're the same way on the 8270A's that are still running... I just looked at amfdoctor's video.

                The links you see that are black are all the same as the one that runs down the 10 side of our tables. From what I saw in person on the converted As I trained on, the cell wiring ran in grooves cut into the table casting....its crazy! And in this video if you look real close you will notice the cell fingers are the original cast aluminum ones!

                So neat to see this running when it was brand new.

                      Not sure what happened with that link - I got a page with several non related videos?

                          So if it was ABC approved April 6, 1962, that means the 82/70 celebrates it's 50th birthday this year!

                            The video is cool, but the design was absolute GARBAGE!!! Ask the question, "Why did 99% of the "A"s get converted?" They did indeed have grooves machined into the table casting for the respot cell wires, guess that didn't work out too well either, LOL. And the chassis, what a nightmare that would have been to keep working, 2 steppers? Wow!! I can bash this design because I had a little time on 10 of them in the mid 80s when the center I now own had them running. If they would have been here when I bought this center I would have junked them as soon as I had possession and replaced they with 30s, but someone beat me to it. I do like the "Magic Carpet" comment in the video, makes me think of a song....

                              At 6:13 in the video - the factory 70 had the 030 block in between the cushion weldment and the cushion plank
