  • 2 or 3 springs?

    how many linear springs do you guys put on your distributors? just kidding :p . actually how many of you run 3 springs on your yokes? i see that the newer machines have 3 mine have two. i was wondering what the pros and cons of this set up are. i'm ass-u-me-ing that with 3 springs you wouldn't have to adjust them with as much tension then the two spring set up. just curious.

      I work with three springs and set the tension even; weak enough so that I can spot single pins but not too weak to cause full spotting problems.
      Pinspotters do not break down when they are not running!
