      Pin Cup, It looks as if a bird has sh$t on your pinion and inner plate.

          I must resist the urge to put it on a machine, just to see if it works.

          Now, I understand the need to make do with what you have, and I have welded and ground/filed the clutch plate to regain proper fit, but I never dreamed of trying to weld the pinion to it.

          Is it worth the time to put it on just to see what happens?

            If it's not crooked it should work, harder to line up the dots.

              if it was welded at 90 degrees. put an enviro pinion in it, or the AMF Black version, and should run a lifetime. No worries about slop and wobble as the plate rocks against pinion.

                  "What the hell?"

                  -and-

                  "Why?"

                  -and-

                  "Um, NO!"


                  If the same person that did this worked on the machines what other nasty surprises might there be?

                    We have been testing 10 plates with the pinion welded to them for a year now and I see no downside yet.

                      ...That weld just didn't look like it was holding much judging from the pic.

                            PinHead, welding the Front Rollers was a common thing to do in the late 60's to Stop the "Freight Train" effect. Just imagine 24 lanes of Noisy Front Rollers and you get the effect.

                            One of the problems we had in the 60's was that the Front and Rear Rollers were Built in Australia at Pioneer Welding which was on The Hume Highway at Lansvale, those as well as The Pines of the lanes, was actually Ash wood, because of the requirement of having a certain percent of the Machines and Lanes had to be from Australia.

                            The main problem of the Front rollers is they never put in a Hole to grease the Hinges, therefore they were never Greased and they got the inevitable result. Add to that the fact we could hardly get Parts for the Machines and the cost of those parts was phenomanal, I will give you an example; I remember in about 1972 I was Head Tech at Hornsby and a Carpet cost $400.

                            I will tell you I never actually Welded a Front Roller, Terry Maloney, being my Head Tech, was removing the Welds over time as we could affort the parts, I'm pretty sure they all got done. I think it was done progressively over a few years, I was transferred to Hornsby in 71-72 than to Enfield than back to Fairfield and stayed to 1976, Terry was transferred to Enfield in 74 from memory.

                              I admit I did that. Not a great weld but it was a old worn plate and pinion i was playing with. I wanted to see if the wobble would go away. I do believe it was on the bench, I never put it on. So Did you throw it out??? Lets try it out????? And there are no other nasty surprises. I have unlimited budget for parts, if needed I order it. I AM NOT ONE TO MICKEY MOUSE something. I may experiment but I do Not cut corners.
