  • sabotage

    Is it just me or is adjusting the respot cells the most god awful part of the job? Takes me a while to get them to lock on the pins and to release them as well.

    I'm beginning to think I have someone wreaking havoc on the machines. That is twice in 2 weeks I have had to completely re-adjust the respot cells on 2 different machines. Pain in the butt!

    Just found a tech tip sheet from AMF that helps alot! Wish I had that to start with. Seems as though if you follow the manual, the respot cells are worse than before you started.

      Your Sabotage theory may hold some water there !

      "Some" mechanics ( I use the term Mechanic loosely here ) have been known to "Set Up" stops to make themselves look good &amp; keep themselves in a Job [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/mad.gif[/img]

      The good book from the days of the "NEW" Pinspotter was great when it was a new machine , But as they wear &amp; age it will often have you setting up a worse situation than what you started with [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/eek.gif[/img]

      Any chance that you could post a URL or link to the AMF Tech Tip sheet you refer too ?

        Actually the tip is photo-copied, not sure how old it is. It looks like it came out an AMF Partnership Program flyer. I'll turn it into a document and email it to you if you want.

          Whaaaat? Never heard THAT one before! Woo

          That could be grounds for CLOBBERIN' TIME, in my not-so-humble opinion. Work your butt off, tryin' to keep these things running like clocks, and someone undoing your work???

          I don't think (keyword: THINK, here) I've ever worked with or for, anybody like that. Talk about a steam valve blowing...!!! [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/mad.gif[/img]

          (Steffie? Got any Tylenol PM? -Gulp- thanks...I'll calm down in a little while...)

            Doug ,
            Did happen here at my Centre [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/eek.gif[/img]

            Previous Head Mech was always accusing the other Day Shift Mechanic of Sabotage ( This Mechanic is NOW the Head Tech )

            The Week after the then Head Tech left ( Under not very happy conditions ) We spent nearly a week fixing Odd Ball Intermittent Faults , 1/2 Cut wires on S/S Start Switches , Intermittent No Strikes , Table Jams , DBL Shuttles from R/Spot Cells wires very loose or off , Generally Childish sort of faults all over the house.

            There were other "CLASSICS" , I'd have to go thru the diary to find them all

            Having said all that , there was no proof of sabotage , But It was a week of Pain that we had not seen prior or since [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/mad.gif[/img]

            Makes one think !!

              Sure does! Wow [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/eek.gif[/img]

              I'm glad the people at All Star are practically relics, there. They'd never even THINK of doing ANYTHING like that. Wow, and I thought I'd heard it all...ya know car mechanics are known to do that around here, to get you to come back and part with more of your hard-earned $...

              You can bet your (br)ass, I'd never work for anyone I suspected of that kind of behavior...

              Woo,

              I'd be outta there...!
