  • pit lights

    I read somewhere that the new duel lamp pit lights could be purchased cheaply at a place in Everet, Washington; can someone confirm this? I had printed out the phone number and of course it has disappeared. I can be reached at stalker@alaska.net and I thank you for responding.

        Doc, I'm looking for the fixtures with the spring loaded sockets for the 1 inch 30's. AMF wants $400 each or some ridiculous amount like that. Just like Complete, they wanted $280 for a 120v vacuum motor for our phoenix and we bought them at Grainger for $88.

          Are you guys talking about dual lights to use onew black light, and one regular? If so I would like to know where to get them so cheap.

            Zot has a great fixture, but it's not cheap either.

              Mike,

              The name of the company is The Lighting Store. I paid $79 for each fixture, they came with 1 daylight bulb and 1 blacklight bulb. Alson included was a toggle switch that we mounted in an existing hole in the p box. Run some BX cable from the top of the fixture to the p box and the changeover to blacklight is a simple walk down the catwalk. The phone number is : 1-888-746-5483
              Ask for Jean and tell her Plaza Lanes in Madison, NJ reffered you.

              Thanks,
              Jason

                I converted all of the orginal fixtures
                on the pinsetter to dual lamps.


                82/70 king:

                spring loaded ends a avaiable at any "good"
                electrical supply store. as for a complete
                fixture, you might end up buying the whole
                thing.

                  i used the fl neon tubes which needs a trannsformer for every six lanes, one lane lights up six lanes. price that i recall was $65 per lane. p.s. regular pins glow with this system. they come in different colors but i only have the bright blue.

                    Well guys I got a hold of The Lighting Store in Everett Wash. I guess those lights someone got from them at $79.00 each was a while ago. I Just talked to them (C J )and they are now $129.00 each. How did some of you go about making your own?
                    thanks, Ron

                          Ron,
                          Pick up a dual light fixture at your local store. Take out the dual bulb ballast &amp; put in the single bulb ballast from your existing unit. Pay attention to how your old fixtures are wired &amp; copy it in the new fixture. Put a toggle switch in so that you can change the ballast feed from one bulb to the other. That's all there is to it.
                          Mount the old fixture's brackets on the new one using screws, washers &amp; nuts. They make them out of thinner metal these days.

                            $129 is still not a bad price, considering, the ZOT fixture is somewhere around $279.
