  • Vulcan Pins HA!

    My center just these wonderful new pins from the Vulcan corporation! ha..... i am having many problems with them, the major problem is the bottoms breaking out.... They are only a month old today, wondering if anyone has had these pins before and how they have kept them in operation

    Thanks!

    I had Vulcans about 15 years ago. After 3 weeks running the wood extended past the plastic ring on the bottom. The pin was sitting on the wood portion and not the ring. Rick DeFelice said he would rebuild the pin for mee. All he did was sand the bottom flat. I refused delivery when the truck arrived at the center. Good luck

      I have never used these pins but my buddies center did a couple years ago. He had the same problem you described. He sent them back and he now uses Amflights exclusively.
      Give me a hammer and some duct tape and I can fix it!

        HEY GUYS

        I AM RUNNING THESE PINS AND I AM NOT HAVING A BIT OF PROBLEM. THEY SCORE WELL, RUN THROUGH THE MACHINE WELL, AND NOT MANY OORs.

        I'LL SAY I LIKE THEM

          I think Vulcans are made by Brunswick. The mold marks look identical.

                I had a bad experience with vulcan pins in different centers. Bottoms falling off, neck very weak. Linage has some to do with it, but your best bet is to stick with AMF Amflite. Even though amf is a terrible company, they make the best pin.

                      Vultex/Vulcan pins are not actually made by Brunswick, but the two companies have an agreement wherein they share the same factory and equipment.
