  • PBL and ball calls for the house

    Another reason I think the machines are alive.

    Three weeks ago I installed a PBL on a pair of lanes. Since we finalized the install we have not had a ball call in the whole house!

    I was replacing 4 kickers per week and it felt like my main job was chasing ball calls during league.

    One PBL and the other four pairs got the warning we are serious about no more ball calls!

    Makes me go hmmmmmmmm

    Sort of like when the pinchaser calls the head mechanic at home about a recurring problem that won't happen when the head mechanic is there to watch... [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif[/img]

          Yea I have gone to a league for 3 weeks now because the pinchaser would have such bad problems they would have to move teams. Since I have been there we have not any problems that take more than 2 minutes to fix

              Tell me about all heck breaken loose, on presidents day I had 2 machines go down. one broke both pit suports and when I got that one fixed the lane right next to it fried a table drive shaft. Not to mention that I already had a carpet going out on lane 1. Did this happen to everyone on presidents day? Seems to me if there is a big holiday all heck breaks loose!

                you have to sweet talk all the machines.Remember you call one a bitch and they all get upset.Be nice to them and they will be nice to you, MOST of the time.
