              All I want in life is to turn wrenches and climb around pinsetters/pinspotters again :/

                Ahhh, I'll never forget the sound those multi-piece sweep bar assemblies used to make as they swept off a full rack of pins- "tink-tink-tink-tink" especially funny sounding with a fast gearbox- I always thought when they were not all bent up and had the AMF logo on the front of them they looked pretty cool. Unfortunately or fortunately I guess, my 50 lanes have the "plastic" single piece sweep bars. Do you have glo bowling and I was wondering if any of those sweep bars had glowing paint that shows up under blacklight? Bet that would look pretty cool. Got anymore cool pics?

                  <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">We now have the single piece plastic ones as well, I can't really knock them, they've held up SUPURBLY, they take a licking and keep on ticking. I always did like the old ones tho, definately sharp looking, I was very anal with them, always dusted, chips painted, and the bars on all 64 lanes (Yes, I need serious help lol) were always kept straight, when maintained they looked great, cant stand it when the bars were bent, we got maybe a 3rd of our house with fast gearboxes on em, they did sound neat "tink"ing the pins off the deck [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif[/img]

                    We still use the 3-piece assembly with the steel tubes... with some mods. We got rid of the heavy fiberglass centerbar and replaced it with square aluminum U-channel (I riveted a strip of 1/8" 'Versacel' PVC sheeting to the back of it to cut down on the "clank-clank" noise and to protect the pins)... and I REFUSE to buy the lower tubes... $20-30 for a stupid piece of white pipe! I've been using 'hardwall' galvanized conduit painted with white alkyd enamel appliance paint. Looks just as good, and costs about $20 for enough material to make about 6 of them.

                      G-Man,

                      Try plain old white PVC pipe for the tubes. Before we changed to the new style sweeps I’d been using PVC for years. It’s even less expensive than what you’re using. Just remove the rubber grommets &amp; slide it into place. It fits perfectly!
