  • Table mod

    Ok, so we were in 21 the other day and decided while we were in there to try a couple table mods. We took the aluminum link off the far side, the one that goes down the 1,3,6,10 side. Very cool looking with that gone. All the support is on the boomerangs, looks awesome. Also took and flipped that one link that ran parallel to it. Flipped the pivots and put the link on the UNDERSIDE of the boomerangs.

    Heres my question:

    With that aluminum link off, where the hell do you run the gripperswitch wires gracefully? Or do you take those off too?

    Also took a shopvac to the table, and with it now missing the one link, ALL the wiring, and a flipped tie link, this table looks like something Jesse James would have made. I like it alot the way it looks.

    Trash the wires.

    Many people have used L channel to replace the wireways.

    Fixed.

      I was actually thinking of some angle iron or something, worried about the weight of it. So no grippers , eh? Cool, i ll give it a whirl.

        70,

        If you are interfaced into the scoring system for pincount, if have you have MP's, omegas or XOP's with expanders you can remove the table wires, just have to jump a wire to ground in the TAC board.

        Taking out the useless wireway cleans thing up a bit, I like to cut off the extra piece of the wireways that extend past the boomerang.

        Aluminum "L" workes OK if you can get T6 grade, hardware store stuff is generally too soft.

        I have a proceedure for removing the wires I can send you if you e-mail me Jisbell@amf.com.
        Please.....follow the instructions!!

          Monkey, just remove the link and flip the pins, then reattach the link on the underside just like you have described. I like the link better there; if you get a bent pivit shaft, it does not affect the locking power of the linkage.

                I have rebuilt 4 tables in the last 6 months, and have done the same mod. I also like the look of the extra wire way, wires, and GP switch gone.

                I spray all aluminum parts down and use a scotch brite pads the make them look new.

                Install new bearings, pivot pins, and any other bad parts.

                It is easy to do and I think worth the trouble.

                    Re: Table mod

                    I run a rotation system of my tables. I built a bench for the job and have one table out being totaly stripped down and re-built then re-installed. While the table is stripped down I spray the main casting and the spotting yoke casting with a chrome finish spray. It looks so cool and makes the table easier to keep clean too. - I'll get some pictures posted!

                    Its easier to do all the little mods and adjustments when the table is at just below chest height and you can walk around it and see what you are doing without banging your head!! [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/mad.gif[/img] It also makes training so much easier when others can see the adjustments comfortably without cramming two fat blokes on the pindeck!!!

                    I agree with ditching the G.P switch wires and bridging the terminals in the trunking, one less thing to go wrong!

                            Well, that may be a problem. For starters, I havent anything to take a picture WITH. And for seconders, im far too retarded to figure out how to post one here. But imagine, if you will, the dipsmack flipped up under yon boomies and the hoosafudge taken out entirely. Not to mention the ENTIRE paddywhack flapjack circuit taken out in the rear. Better?
