    The wireways on the 90's look heavy duty.....is that angle iron? [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif[/img]

      No wires on the 90s. The camera sees the pins and determines whether or not to operate the table to fell for pins OR just bypass that and spot a new rack of ten. Cool pics!

          that's pretty cool-having 30's and 90's side by side-in the same center-where's this at and how many lanes?

            <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">Well if you believe the numbers painted up on the curtain wall it's at least 40... and they're not all in a line. There were several centers in LA in the 50's and 60's built with opposing sides.

                Which one runs better? Hard to say sometimes. Ha. Ha.

                This is a split house located in Gretna, La,20 on each side. It was modeled after a 72 lane split house in Atlanta, Ga. 24 on each side, a passageway about ten feet behind the pit area on the low side that led to another 24 lanes. Not such a good idea as these lanes had no control desk. When the bowlers finished bowling they would just walk out the EXIT door without paying. Didn't take long to turn this 24 into a skating rink. I worked in this center in the early 70's.
                It was a beautiful house, high ceiling over the concourse with large chandlier's hanging down. Equipped with 30's, pindication with ball path and the whole nine yards. It burned down a couple of years after I left.

                There were two more centers built on this model, one in Miami, Fla. the other in Birmingham, Ala. Don't know what happened to the one in Miami but the one in Ala. closed a few months back if I'm not mistaken. It was owned by AMF.

                Will send some pics of the 30's here asap.

                  Reminds me of my Dad's place. 16 lanes and until 1995, we had 8 82-30s and 8 82-70s. 30s ran great, but we had 4 field converted 70s (from 82-70 A's) that were crap. Other 4 70s were OK, came from Japan in 1974, hated the National combo motors. Are you removing the 30s a few at a time or doing the whole bunch?

                    Hi Toon,

                    Knew you would be interested in this. We have 90's, 1 thru 20, 30's 21 thru 38 and 90's on 39 and 40. A company from Pa. installed 1 thru 20, we installed 39 @ 40. We are now negoating for the other 18 machines.

                    Whem I can get a computer nerd rounded up I'm going to put a few pictures of rebuilds we have done in other 30 centers onto our center web site: since I know absolutely nothing about computers.

                    P,S. How many red necks does it take to lift the front end of a 90 machine onto the kick backs??
                    Ha. Ha.
