  • Pinspotter Age?

    My 8270 Pinspotters are all in the 141,000 serial number range. Does anyone here have any idea how old these are? Just wondering.
    Give me a hammer and some duct tape and I can fix it!

        Wow, they're newer than I thought. I have an 18 lane center, and 6 machines are refurbished, but the other 12 were there since they were new, but I kinda thought they were older than that.

          I have a pinwheel cover with the serial number 149,000. It's been date stamped as 06 - 84 .

            Sorry to bring up an old thread, but our 82-70's have serial numbers on the pinwheel covers of 13,257 - 13,268 (12 lane center) and yes it is thirteen thousand numbers.

            I thought they were from the late 1950's early 1960's???

              Well, it would have to be early 60's because the 82-70 didn't come out until then. Since this thread has been re-opened I'll correct my original post. My serial numbers are all in the 118140 range. I had the first and last numbers mixed up. My machines were installed in June of 1975.

                One of my old centers in Denmark, had serial numbers in the 10,000 range.
                They had the Distributor support close to the table, and not above the ball door.
                These ones where made in UK.

                  Worked on early 101,000 models, 70's S/S coverted to pbl's. And we made them run remarkably well for there age. I would imagine they would run for anothor 40 years easy!

                    Yes, it seems like the 82-70 if well maintained will run for an endless amount of time.

                          I believe they called that machine "the guillotine"! As some people could get your head caught between the table and the bar. [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/crazy.gif[/img]
