  • Anyone know?

    Where to get parts for the Quality/lesson motors?

    The ones that fit national combo gearboxes.

    I have two that need cent. switches and have no leads on a vendor.
    You gonna eat that?

    Put in a potential relay and trash the cent switches.

    $17 from Grainger for both mech. and cent. switch.

      The Quality SSSS works real well with National motors.

        I ran across a BE National that the PW output was 20% faster that normal. It gave me pileups for a month until I noticed it.

          <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">Yep... 16 of our 30 machines have 'em. It's just a matter of adjustments to smooth things out. If you only have one, it's probably not worth it. I kind of like the faster machines... they have their drawbacks (one-pin jams quickly become 20-pin pileups, and they do have to be kept VERY well in adjustment), but they also cycle a lot faster because there is little wait while the bin fills on back-to-back strikes, and you don't fall asleep watching them run.

            'G', I agree, The owner of the 12 lane house where I work PT has 6" pulleys. He runs a sport league &amp; does not have short cycle and wants them fast. As you said, if you keep them clean and adjusted, they work fine--and no head first off the O pan.
            Yeah but, We've always done it that way.

              when i see machines with the fast BEMs i cant help but think of tetris, when you at about 300,000 points and you get one wrong *bam*bam*bam*bam* before you can even swear! - bit like pileups with fast BEMs

                <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">Ahhh, the quality/lessin motor next best thing to a nat. motor. I belive you can get those types of motors from Stalhs 1-452-432-2231 is the phone number I belive, or maby it was Newel's 1-800-796-2200 it's been about a year since I ordered the last one I got. Haven't had any sort of problem with them. I would recomend putting a SSSS on it. If you buy a Quality SSSS or have some burned out ones laying around you can easily rebuild them. The parts inside are really cheap to buy at a local Electronics store.
                There is always more to life, but would someone tell me what it is!
