  • Training for a new guy

    Hello to all the members of Bowl-Tech. I've been watching this site for a while and have learned alot of things already. In fact when I went home on leave last time (active duty NAVY) I actually used some information I got from this forum to do a sweep adjustment on a 82-70 and it worked great so thanks there. My point is right now I'm in Fallon Nv. Transferring to San Diego Ca. In September with a short stay in Pensacola Florida for Military training. Anyways before joining the Navy I worked as a pinchaser on 82-70's. I will be probably getting of the Navy after my time in San Diego and have been offered a possible job as a mechanic at the same house and was wondering one thing. If there is anyone in the San Diego area that I could meet up with when I get there to get some hands on training. Please beaware that the job offer I got from the old house also came with a 82-70 service manual so I can study adjustments and other maintenance. So the is the real deal here I would love if anyone could give me help on 82-70 machines, Qubica scoring, also would love to learn about good lane conditining. Quick things here the machines are currently 82-70 splid state chasis, omega-tek conversion boards, qubica scoring, and AMF HPL Lanes. Thank You for your time and thank you for this website I've learned alot already. Also my time as a pinchaser was two years, so I have a good understanding of operations of machines just would like to learn from some of the best in the business.

    Maintenance is the key. So study that part real hard. The Adjustments will be a great starting point. But unless your machines & lanes are new. You will find that some of your book adjustments will not work. Dont be afraid to ask questions. With a place like this at your finger tips. You should never be without help anytime you need it.
    As far as lane condition, There are over 3,600 members. So I imagine you will have over 2,000 different ideas on lane condition. I like a tougher lane condition. Other's like a easy condition. Some would router a channel to the pocket if it was legal.

          Lovetobowl, welcome to the field. Not to many centers left in San Diego; I think that there may be 5 left. Good luck finding anything nearby. If you make it to Phoenix your welcome to stop by Sunset Bowl. Qubica scoring, 70's with MP's but can help you with solid state.

            Lovetobowl,

            Are you at Oasis or is there a new center in Fallon? On the base? I'm only an hour away &amp; need a new place to ride the bike to before making the trek to Elko on the 18th. Can I come out to see you? I might be able to give you a tip or 2. E-mail me direct &amp; we can talk more.

                    I've Been orking on 82-70's for 28 years, &amp; I was wandering about that pop quiz on the home page.One of the questions was about the width of a spotting cup on 82-70's,because the proper width is 4 1/4 on AMF cups &amp; depending on your Manufacturer. I Got that From the "AMF GOD" Himself, &amp; It is also in Your Service Manual Also. Thanx Guys.

                      Old School i've considered the channel idea,but I reakon my bowlers could'nt hit it enough,they would demand a ramp be added for accuracy.

                        Lovetobowl,
                        Do you work at the center on base? I bowled there a lot when I was in the Marines whenever we headed to a Navy [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/usflag.jpg[/img] base in the middle of the desert, I like the irony. (it's an air base, they get carrier air groups, just no carriers)
                        After I got a job with Lockheed, I bowled in a couple of leagues there. I like the sound of the improvement they've made since then.
                        Good luck after you get out, while your still in drop Dutch a line the next time your in Reno. He's an old dog that knows a few tricks. [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif[/img]

                          Hey PJS,
                          Your right about the irony. It's strange to find a navy base in the middle of the dessert whose job it is to train pilots for a aircraft carrier depoyment. I tried getting on at the bowl on base but no go. I even told them that i pinchased on them for two years beofre joining the navy and still no go. I'm going to try to get by to see Dutch if I can. Thanks for the message
