  • lane machines and oil

    ok guys and gals, about 8 years ago i had a phoenix wick machine and had scores out the shooter while running an easy but legal pattern with defense w oil. one afternoon while running the lanes during a really bad thunderstorm, we got hit really close and basically fried my machine. so we spent the 20 large for the kustodian. went to offense oil. scores were ok, but down a bit (similar pattern.) now, for some reason my filter would become clogged about once a month. went to prodigy but then after months of pattern adjustments, i find out that the prodigy oil has a reaction with certain topcoats. (i have wood lanes as you can tell) so i go back to offense and same thing with filters. simply, is anyone using same as me and do you have this problem as well???? thanks all!

      Re: lane machines and oil

      its always your fault as far as the bowlers are concerned.Way back in the fifties and sixties we oiled lanes by hand from a fly spray type instrument.The oil was put on the lanes to PROTECT the lane and not for the bowlers help.it was simply sprayed on the heads and a towel used to spread it across the lane. This was to stop friction burn from the balls (made of rubber) and to try to keep the black tracking marks down, on TC6 lacquer. well things have certainly progressed and now we have singing , dancing lane machines that will give maximum benefit to the bowlers. The bigger their scores, the more they come back , which is great. It is my opinion only, and i repeat, my opinion only, that it is becoming easier and easier for average bowlers to get bigger scores through no extra ability.Please don't give me a hard time for giving my opinion.

          I use Prodigy oil and have had awesome success using a phoenix s .The old center I worked at used offense
          and the same thing filters clogged white sludge in the bottom of the tank. Looked like elmer glue. No problems with prodigy now.We have 82 300's and 50 800's including an 865. We had a 3790 shot Tuesday so no complaints here.
