  • Yoke 8270

    I need to purchase a new yoke.
    Would you purchase the Yoke assembly.070-002-623 or the Yoke 070-002-683.
    Who would you purchase from. [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/usflag.jpg[/img]

    I generaly get the whole thing, just because it is easier. (assembly comes with bearings) If you have budget restrictions, you can re-use the old bearings (99% of the time that is) as they have very little weight for there aplication, and hardly any rotation.

      I Agree With JimDorsin; But I Don't Know Who Is Using Set Screws and or Roll Pins in the Table Leg's??? [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/eek.gif[/img] I Would Prefer Amf or Would Try Stahl's if the price would pay/beat or save shipping from AMF.

        We've changed 3 or 4 of them over the past few years with yokes we got from AMF. 0 problems so far
        All I want in life is to turn wrenches and climb around pinsetters/pinspotters again :/

          in my opinion it is better to order the yoke complete with the bearings installed, and save the old ones for an emergency.the ones you take out may not have been wearing evenly, if maintenance has failed to be carried out or if damage occurred to a yoke at a bearing.

            I prefer the AMF yokes. Stay away from the JCP yokes if you can, they do work with a lot of modification.

            And I always order them with the bearings.

                6 eggs to some, half dozen to the other.
                just order from whoever is cheapest unless you really have a prob with a certain company. I just buy AMF. or use the X-frame repair kit. have pinsetters running with the repair kit for 10+ years now

                  we get re-enforced ones from a supplier in the uk, i believe they are a Vantage part, seem less flimsy than the AMF ones.

                  lost 2 yokes in 4 1/2 years over 22 machines and we're really busy (both were caused by decapitated twisters, base standing up between cups and snapping the yoke downwards)
                  Want your old pins collecting anywhere in the UK? email me on

                    I've had very good luck with Vantage units.
