  • Pin Wires

    hey guys got a ? for ya

    with the exception of 1 lane where I preplaced the whole table plug becuase of a cracked plug, i have replaced 8 individual wires on 5 lanes. The problem is that they will not ground out with pins in the cells. We jumped to differnt pins and they work fine. My solution is just to push the pin out and replace the whole wire. How do u guys solve this? thanks

    Re: Pin Wires

    Before I got rid of the pin wiring, we used to keep several spare table cable assemblies handy, if we started having problems with one, we just pulled the whole cable and plugged in the new one, then worried about fixing bad wires later on the old cable. once it was fixed, it would go back in the the pile of spare cables. If a cable doesn't fix it, it's probably broken wires in the table stringers... they usually break at the front ends of the channels where the wires have to bend hard.

    Fold a small piece of sandpaper in half, close the cells, put it between the cell contacts, then hold the cell open to squeeze the paper, and then pull it out... squirt a little contact cleaner in it to get rid of loose gunk. A lot of times that will correct a problem cell or cells if you can't seem to find anything else wrong.

    Best contact cleaner I found so far is CAIG Deoxit D5.

      Once a year go through with thin cardboard or business cards are perfect, close the respot cells, stick the corner or edge of the card between the stop screw ,insert assy and the rivet it grounds to, then apply pressure to the card by spreading the fingers, then pull the card out while still applying pressure, this cleans the contacts. There will usally be a lot of dirt or oil that comes off on the card.If you don't do this you can get spotting with a pin still in the cup because it can't ground out.

      Sorry G-man I just repeated you
