  • BIN: Pin guides

    This would certainly make changing several parts on the bin a little easier, and a lot less time consuming. Definitely a back saver!!! The holes don't have to be this big, but I took the measurements off an installed bin assembly; not an easy chore.

    Parts suppliers: Get your vendors to re-tool and make our jobs easier, so we can spend more time up front playing pin ball, drinking coffee, (or beer), and telling the bowlers everything they need to know about bowling. Right T.C. LOL

    I've taken most of those things off. Especially the ones that get in the way of other hardware. I use them for up-rights on the 4 & 6 bins.

              Thanks for your input guys. Will have to give that a try. Never really paid any attention to what those puppies do or don't do. Just know they are a pain if you have to change other things out.

                I've never had a problem getting under them.

                Just ground a cheap 7/16" boxed end thin enough to slip between the guide and stringer.

                  I'm with Dutch. I've removed all of mine and flipped them up and at an angle towards the front on the 2-3-4-5-6 positions to eliminate the neck from hanging over the stringers into adjacent bins (causing the occaional pile-up).

                      Careful on that headpin chute. It looks good, but be sure that the cuts are filed smooth. The head of the pin usually slides down on the painted part.
                      As far as the pin guides go, if your second stack of pins get deposited straight every time (no hangovers), then the guides do nothing. But they do a good job of turning the upper pin in straight when its on an angle.
                      I've removed all the 5-pin ones, plus the other 4 inner ones. Found the outer ones still help, and they don't interfere as much as the inners on other parts.

                              Masternut, looks like a good idea, I did see something not mentioned in the pics, it looks ( a bit dark ) like something modified on the front of the 9 and 10 bins, I can't see any mention of this in any of the pics.
                              willey.
