  • making an 82-70 quiet

    What are the best ways to keep noise down in an 82-70? I carpeted the plows and that seems to have helped but I was wondering how to quiet down the pin wheel. I was thinking that a big rubber band, like they use on a brake lathe to keep the high pitch sound down, might work. Make it an inch and half wide and 1/8 inch thick would work. They already have the black tar crap on them but I think this rubberband may help a little more. Any other ideas? By the way I'm in a 6 lane center with an 8 foot ceiling above the lanes and carpet half way up the walls.

    Devin,

    That's an interesting thought about the rubber band. We are changing a pinwheel ring tomorrow so maybe I can get an idea when I look at it then.

      Work in the back of a Brunsjunk house and then tell me if 70's are noisy. :p

          Brunswicks are just as quite as 82-70's.
          1. Make sure the rubber cords are on pinwheel.
          2. Use your old kicker strips (carpet) and put them on the outside each pinwheel pocket.
          I do agree 70's are not as loud as brunswick,
          but brunswicks noise can be cut way down if those two steps are followed.

              Ed, got any good ideas on how to quiet down an 82-30? I just bought a 12 lane center with a block foundation that's about 3 feet high. I did find out last summer that it is possible to put a toggle together backwards so that the lower bumper is not making contact with the mechanism.

                Still never seen or heard a 30 from the back [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/frown.gif[/img] Eventually I suppose I'll get the time and go to our sister center for the grand tour. They have 16 30's up there, rather old ones too from what I hear

                  Toon,
                  I have heard about a system that works without the toggles. It uses a magnetic cluch to stop the pinwheel if the distributor counter is on zero, and they use a kidney pan just like in a 70 machine. Haven't seen one.

                  So it goes.

                          All the Brunsdumps around here have turret belts that squeal at about 150 decibles.

                            Toon...I guess you could line the plows with something, so you don't get the CLANG CLANG CLANG of pins hitting them....And make sure you have all the rubber bumpers in the toggles......that helps a lot.

                            Apart from that....Don't turn them on!! [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif[/img]
