  • head pin bin glides

    I just noticed the last mechanic had some head pin bin glides from vantage. Has anyone had any experience with these? I dont want to put them on if they cause a double 1 pin shuttle or other problems. I run 21 pins in the machines because of reduction pulleys.

    We have the urethane pin guides on all our lanes they have been on for years,they were also lowered at the front(head pin end)to keep the head pin from "fish tailing" as it enters.

        Jonas,

        Why? Did they fall off? Did they break?

          We found that they work too well. They allow the pin to slide into the bin with enough force to break the butt guide or its shock mounts. Even if you decrease the angle of the tracks, the pin still hits hard. If you’re tired of replacing roller bearings, they do get you away from that & they’re quieter too.

            OK guys,
            I apologize for my earlier post, it was no help to anybody. I will try to keep this one more on target.
            I have never used them or witnessed they're operation. I don't know if they work. I know the ones for the Dist arms did not work for me. The pins slid off into the bin slower than with the bearings, causing misfeeds. I believe what Dutch says about them and I understand why. I wonder how well the "resting" pins slide with just gravity acting on them?
            Give them a try. You might like them. Never hurts to try something new that's relatively inexpensive. It builds up your knowledge base.

                  Jerry, if you can't get them I have used AMF under lane track for the same purpose. Works fine, just bolt it on.

                    you can also use Bowl-Tuff material. I think that Enviro Bushing makes these also. My friend at another center uses them and they seem to work .

                      Hey Hey!
                      Indeed, there is no such thing as pin glides at Vantage anymore, just the original-style rollers.

                      As for if they're good or not, they were in one house I worked at, and they were never a problem. Of course, the rollers are seldom a problem anyway.

                      I'm not sure, but if I remember right, they were invented by Roger Bagley (a really sharp mechanic), and made for a while at Vantage.

                      Eh. Rollers are fine.

                            I've seen these on many machines, Headway industies made some years back, kind of bluish in color, they were on machines at Seminary lanes for 20 years or so, never heard of any issues.

                              Things is good John! We are usually kind of slow this time of year, leading into Christmas and summer holidays. But this year it's berserk! Not that I'm complaining :-)

                              How's things with you?
