  • Jerry Rig #69

    The 1/4 inch bolt that affixes the shuttle strap to the shuttle stringer broke on lane #10 tonight during league......it was the outside of the #7 pinholder.......I removed the broken bolt and used a wiretie to keep the shuttle stinger together.....it ran the rest of the league flawlessly.

    "Zippies" are good for anything, aren't they?

    We once used a couple of the big 36" ties to hold the front end and grille on a Buick Regal... they held up better than the original bolts!

    The fix-all tool kit... a hammer, prybar, pliers, duct tape, baling wire, and zip ties. Add a couple cans of spraypaint, and you have a full-service garage. [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif[/img]

      I'm holding up what's left of my Aerostar's front bumper with wire ties.

      Be sure though that you have wire ties in all the colors so that folks will know that this was the work of a professional. [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif[/img]

        Have a back board in my centre which is held up by "zippies" (cable ties) and various pieces of wire. The machine has migrated into the wall, and cannot get into the side of the machine to re-attach the back-board bracket. Needless to say the bracket is held in place with nuts and bolts, not your normal screw fixture
        Cant wait to strip lanes 1 and 2 down and move them across for room to do this repair!! [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/eek.gif[/img]

              My best zip tie use yet was when the sheet metal bracket that tensions the pin gate spring on a "B" machine sheet the bed in the middle of a league. Zip tie with a screw loop over the spring, around the interlock shaft and bingo, pin gate works again. Was still going strong when the new part came in several weeks later (if part didn't show up, I woulda forgot it was in there) Another good piece for the potato masher quick fix kit.

                Mr. King, I find it hard to believe that you installed a zip tie during a league and it held all night. Not that a zip tie wouldnt hold, but that you installed it.lol (see work hours post dec 15 2003) never work past 5pm mon 3pm rest of the time. Must have been the ghost of Jerry past. Happy Holidays.

                  A-2:
                  Restricted drop bracket top mounting bolt broke during league. Large cushion facing zippie held it through the shift.

                  When I floss my teeth with the tiny ones, I get a buzz. Is that normal?
