  • 090 sweep brackets

    I have seen them break too often -and too quickly

    Anyone else have this issue?

    Yes they do since they put a twist in it

      I have a few from I believe Stahl's. They don't have a bend and are twice as thick as AMF's. Maybe Stahl's can chime in and verify if they are the distributors of this one. There is no way these will bend.
      If it cant be fixed with a hammer, use a bowling pin.

        And get bent in a way it tears apart the shock mount.

        This is why I prefer the slider brackets, since there is give with these they don't bend as often.

          If the ones your tallking about attaches to the sweep bar then I have been putting them on in place of the sliders bracket and have no issues with them. I get mine through colonial but is a AMF parts.

            Even though they bend and snap sooner than the sliders, I still prefer them. Too often I've seen the rakes get hit enough to tweak the sliders where it doesn't always slide back down and catches the deck light; leaves for a not so pleasant mess and repair to take care of .

            In addition, I'm not a fan of the way the sliders can ride over the deadwood in the gutter, which propels a deadwood, usually head first, in front of the mask; giving the open play jokers a nice launching ramp to hit the masking unit. (Seen that happen too many times too).

            I guess I'm just spoiled after working on Brunswick A-2s and dealing with a better rake setup. I've always thought the AMF design left alot to be desired.

            Just my opinion, though.

              if the AMF sweep had the reliability and no bounce like the Brunswick rake, it would be bullet-proof. but thats what makes them different animals.

                I received a call from Stahl's today

                They have a 90 sweep bracket that is much thicker

                I will replace 4 lanes at a time until all the AMF brackets are gone

                  Interesting. I would be interested in pics but I have to wonder, with this part being more rigid the energy of a ball impact has to be transferred to other parts of the sweep.

                    Been using them for years, never had an issue with them
                    Giving bowlers less to complain about, one lane at a time

                      I'd like to see a comparison photo between the AMF bracket & the Stahl's brackets....

                        I also prefer the 90 bracket for the reasons mentioned by Kat with the pin light but also when popeye's pipe gets broken by some cosmic animal,the sweep will still work until end of shift.

                          Yeah likewise keeth, I have those brackets across my whole house, no more shattered pit lights from a jammed slide bracket from a moron hitting the sweep. Yeah occasionally we have to change bent ones but I can live with that....

                            090006129 (7 side) & 090006130 (10 side) don't have the additional bend in the bracket. Though these are for steel sweep links, I have used them with cast links with no problems.

                              Billy, thanks for letting us know. I'll be sure to try them out as we go through quite a few of these here. Would you say these are more robust compared to the original style?

                              I had a 4:1 go bad and I've never seen or done one before. Trying to search the depths of the forums, YouTube videos, it didn't seem too bad....

                              Is there a minimum dimension from the clutch face to the rivet.
