  • XLI question

    Has anyone tried taking off the weaker counter balance springs? It seems as if the 2 springs on each side is a little too much. As the table spots pins its as if the table doesnt want to go all the way to the pindeck and it even has a bit of a bounce. This is not one machine but all of them.
    If it cant be fixed with a hammer, use a bowling pin.

    Steel table? Doesn't it need all four springs because the table is heavier? Would that hurt the gearbox without the small springs?

      The machine height needs to be checked from the pin deck. It won't work very well if it's over 18 7/8". You can remove one of the springs (either side) for a while. I've had to on some new machines.
      With all 4, the table is lighter that a cast alum table at the bottom, and yes, it's heavier at the top with no counterbalance spring tension. This is why the new mounting spec is 18 7/8 instead of 19". Else you can add a lead brick for additional weight
      This post is not an unpaid promotion of my business.
