  • What to do Chassis or lanes

    OK I thought I would ask you all a little advise. Last night the owner was talking to me about summer projects. Two came up.

    First we have 60' guardian that is getting wore out. The bowlers over the past couple of years have been getting better and better. This surface is fading fast. The lanes under are getting too thin for wood. And we only have 10 lanes with relatively low linage. So new wood is probably out of the question.

    Next we have old stepper chassis. But they work great! and we have two complete spare chassis that work and extra relays. Our Quibica scoring works other than we do not have a short cycle.

    I am ready to push for for the lane work. WHat would you do? Thanks for the advise.

    I should go for the lanes!
    How do you know your lanes are too thin?
    If there are not too many spikes coming to the surface I should concider proper injection, resurfacing and a 100% solid coat(two top coatings).
    But thats just my opinion...
    No short cycle/low lineage...your machines have to run to get the oil in the top of your gearbox [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif[/img]
    Spend the money you save on overlays to some extra re-coats!
    Nothing beats wood!!, I miss it!

    So it goes.

      The bowlers have to pay to see old ugly lanes.....take care of the lanes 1st....use the extra revenue from having nice lanes to get a few chassis.

          I agree with Jerry. Make the lanes look nice and do the chassis later. You said they you don't have much trouble with the machines, so take care of the lanes first.
          Give me a hammer and some duct tape and I can fix it!
