  • Pinwheel distance

    Hi folks,
    Out of curiosity is there a set distance the edge of the pinwheel should be from the back of the bin assy? I have been in the process of straightening them out as I have found a few lanes one side is different to the other, but was curious what are they meant to be?
    AS REQUESTED....The all new and VERY improved "super cool" Pin_Head with super hip shades.....

    I have set all the Machines the same , Back-end up tight to the Front-end. No problem with the clearance for the Dizzy, just make sure the dizzy support is Vertical Font to rear, and left to right,Back-ends levelled front to Rear , All running Sweet

      Hey Brett, if your BE are set up correctly in theory your pin wheels should all be the same. However, you may come across some pin wheel rollers that have been shimmed up for what ever reason (someone too lazy to replace them?) or even wgere some of the kickbacks have been poorly repaired or installed. Lastly, if your jack screws have sunken into to the crappy timber block then this may have some bearing on the angle and pitch of the wheel. Oh, if the dizzy crossbeam was a poor conversion from the suicide setup then it will pull the top of the wheel towards the bin.
