    Got some new pics to post
    Here are some pics of a pinwheel that broke....

    Next are pics of a yoke I just did.....it was my first one.

    This is a platinum carpet I just put in

    This is a pindeck that was just patched and resurfaced.

    This is a cushion where I cut the cover out of an old carpet with just the top 6 holes cut.

    All these pics can from lane 61. It has gotten a makeover. New carpet, cushion, yoke, rebuilt bin, pinwheel fixed, and new dist belt.

    Thanks for looking

      Very nice wang...FYI Stahls does make a cusion cover that has only the top row of rivet holes, but nothing is as much fun and brings as much pride as making it yourself...Come on down to reno, we got 50 you can do...lol

            Jim, we do have a few lanes that have the stahls cover, but we have so many old carpets laying around I decided to start making them myself to save money. Only 50 to do? We have 64 to do! lol [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif[/img]

            The pinwheel broke becuase the ring tube had been riding down for a while and it just tore it up. One day that lane started jaming alot and a guy cleared and noticed that the under part there was just hanging down. Good thing we have a welder!

                Nice pics, Wang.

                As to the ring tube changing...

                I don't... in fact, I DETEST it.

                We had a couple of the "new side" machines come in with broken ring tube brackets, and started running out-of-round, causing the unit to scrape when it was turning.

                I don't know why I hate it so much... it's not really THAT hard of a job... I just do.

I hate working on the pinwheel of an 82-30. Seems there is more grease there than on the rest of the machine combined. Don't take it like I don't like getting dirty. But when you are bowling and have to fix a toggle, that sucks, LOL!!!!

                  It's been 9 years since I worked on 70s, but how does the ring tube mount to the pinwheel? Are there tabs on the ring tube that have bolts through them and the wheel? On my 30s, someone before me added some angle brackets to help the toggle castings hold the weight of the wheel. 2 years and only 2 broken castings, so it must work!!

                    <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">I have, the ring tube is much easier to change on a 30 than a 70 (but still no fun on either [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/mad.gif[/img] ). Also it is much more common for a ring tube to break on a 30 vs a 70 due to the design of the way it is supported.

                    <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">The ring tube is bolted to the PW (through brackets that are welded on) and the ring tube bearings are mounted to the PW cover.

                    <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">Yes, those angle brackets work very well. If you’re a good welder, you can make an emergency ring tube repair bracket.

                    Take an old ring tube and cut out a 6” section. Then cross cut that section in ½.

                    Weld a piece of metal on the top of both sections and drill two holes in both brackets.

                    Weld 2 nuts on the back of one plate.

                    You will need to grind the bottom of the brackets in order for it to clear the ring tube bearings when bolted together.

                    Just bolt this device over the broken area and it will hold the ring tube together for weeks. It would probably go even longer but the longest I’ve ever left one on was two weeks.
