  • Looking for an AMF mentor

    After 30+ years of Brunswick machines, I am wanting to learn more about the "other side" of the coin. Is someone willing to send me information regarding therory of operation? I do not have any AMF machines to play with nearby, just wanting to get a basic idea of how it operates and some of the nomenclature.

    thanks, billman

    There's actually a section of the manual that contains the theory of operation... Anyone have a scanned copy of the manual?

          You know what they say......
          Once you go AMF you will never go back....
          You can get anything in life you want..... If you just help enough other people get what they want.

                I'm thinkinng about doing the same thing on a very part time basis, but I don't know if the center I'm thinking about even needs help. I worked on the B's for about 10 years, and this is a well maintained 82-70 house. I'm very interested in learning the 82-70 machines but as of now cannot afford to quit my day job which I hate(but has med/dental benis + 4 weeks vacation). From an owners/managers point of view would it be worth a centers time and manpower to train me on the machines for maybe only working a couple of days a week? Money wouldnt be an issue to start, they could pay me close to minimum wage, the experience would be worth it IMO. I wouldnt mind even being a last minute backup if some pinchaser called in sick.
