  • AMF 82 -95 Candlepinspotter

    Back in the late 70s I used to work on Amfs candlepin machines 8295s JUst wondering if any one else out there ever worked on them? They were basicly like a 30 and 70 combined
    .The distributer rode on a track like the 30s but the pinwheel and front end were like a 70. The machine only used 2 motors instead of 1 ! for the sweep and table and 1 for the back end the pit was the same except no balldoor. The balls went into the pinwheel with the pins.pockets for the pins and the balls Also was trying to see if anyone had pics of them just joggin down memory lane [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif[/img] [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif[/img]

    I asked about this a few months ago and someone did post a picture. It doesn't seem to be there anymore. I have a copy on my home computer. I'll post it here tomorrow.

      Here's a picture of the backend of a bowling center with the 82-95's. I forgot who provided it to us originally.

          Looks like an off spring of the Thirtys.

                Thanks a lot for the pic sure brought back some fond memrories.They had treyre quirks but for the most part ran real well of course all they had to do was sweep pins and set a rack once every 3 balls.Bowlmors are much more reliable.

                  <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">Being a Massachusetts native I have bowled many, many, many games of candlepins. All Bowl-Mor centers. In all the years I bowled candlepins I think I've seen maybe one or two machine stops.

                  I would like to see those AMF 82-95's though. Are there any still in use?
