          <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">See pics of my pinsetters in the Image Gallery at the BowlTech homepage. I sure I've got at least 1 pic of the exit area showing all the drives.

            Kat all I can see from the pic is belts and pulleys, I kind of was interested basically in what the pit, without the carpet, looks like...example: pulleys under carpet, bearings...stuff like that.

              Not much to it... a self-centering (split) steel roller in the front with a bearing at each end, that sits into a set of springloaded, rubber-damped tensioner brackets that hold it by the bearings.

              In the back, a solid steel roller with bearings at each end. It mounts into a set of rubber-damped brackets, one of which is hinged for removal of the shaft. One end of the roller has a long, flatted shaft that sticks out through a hole in the side of the machine, where it is turned by a drive sheave.

              Between the rollers is a "bounce plate"... basically, two planks that are angled by brackets to guide the ball toward the ball exit under it's own weight.

              Over all of this is an endless, conveyor belt 'carpet'.

              Sorry I don't have pics... I didn't take any the last time we pulled a pit. Anyone here doing pit rebuilds that has a digital camera?

              Here's the only pics I have of the drive area... sorry they're not the greatest...

                      Hey, no prob...

                      I edited Queen's pics to give ya a rough idea of just how things are situated... I'd like to give you some real images of it, but unfortunately, a pit isn't something that is a lot of fun to pull apart just to take pics...




                      Maybe when Queen pulls a pit apart to buff and polish the bounceplate brackets and the undercarriage, he can take some for ya. [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif[/img] :p

                          Thanks for the well illustrated pics Gman, it clicked (figured out how it worked). I've only worked on B's in the past, very intersted in AMF's 82-70/90's, not 82-30's though (yuck).
