  • aah, salvation, thank you!!!

    2 days ago a truck arrived at the back doors to my bowl with a sort of hue around it, a very nice man got out his forklift and lifted some pallets off onto the floor by the fire exit and we blissfully carried the precious cargo inside, feverishly we cleaned the machines down one by one and loaded the precious cargo, and there endeth the rain of the ****ING twister pins as they were relaced with a nice new set of AMFLITE II's !!!!!!!

    IMMIDIATLEY the orientation and pin action on the O-pan improved and said machines havent missfed a single pin since install - there IS a god, 3 $0dding years i have had twister and twister 2 pins, i was loosing the heads off 3-5 a week in the last few weeks, i have never been so glad to see a bill in my life!

    i accept that twister pins work in brunswick machines, but ill have the machine that is 20 times less complicated and a bit more fussy about its pins!!!

    relieved, Jez

    My Amflites will be here the 1st week of July.

    I refuse to tweak an o pan or dist. until then.

    I think new Amflites run great.

        Boy, I wish I could say the same as Jez. I do belive that our company has them in the budget somewhere to get Amflites. I will be sure glad to see them get once we do order them. I've got 3 year old twisters right now and replacing them just like jez, only about 1-2 per week though.
        There is always more to life, but would someone tell me what it is!
