    Easy installation.
    Takes 2 minutes to replace.
    About the same price as (we pay for)a regular solenoid(about 70 Euro).
    Will keep you updated.
    So it goes.

    We have a couple of these on, work really well. Beat's changing those feet anyday, and messing with the spring when the feet get one in the middle of a league on a busy friday night................

      Re: New solenoid

      I like the simplicity of it…Cool

      I’d be curious to know what happens if the table was a coaster and that thing couldn’t lift. Since I don’t see any spring linkage to absorb undesired conditions, I would think the solenoid might get burnt up in a short time.

        Re: New solenoid

        After looking at it again, it appears to be a pusher instead of a puller…Damn Monkey and his magnets. [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif[/img]

        I could see how no damage would occur if the shuttle stop bolt were out of adjustment. But still curious of what would happen to it on a coasting table. My latch arms don’t have that long extension (as shown) and could easily get pushed behind the spotting arm.

          Re: New solenoid

          This is the spot solenoid that I posted on here some time ago. It requires some small alterations for older 70's with front ends for double solenoids. They are still going strong in my centre and they eliminate alot of the linkages behind/under the existing solenoid, plus as Lampie said they are so easy to replace - if nessasary!!

          These are supplied by Embassy Services based in the UK.

            Re: New solenoid

            Intresting, does it push the linkage down far enough to bring the opposing links (the ones under the original solenoid) up high enough to lock the mechanism, so the table drive latch roller cannot lift the release lever, thereby causing the table not to run all the way down to the lane.

            No doubt that replacement is a breeze.
            Please.....follow the instructions!!

              I just wonder how often you want (or have) to change the solenoid. If you have to change them often there must be something wrong with you adjustments. I'm in the machines for 25 years and never had one broken.

                <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">You have a point here, but, the solenoids in the machines are about 30 years old and I had to replace maybe 3 of 'em in different machines in the last 5 years(nothing wrong with the adjustments, possibly a spring, link or other thingy attached- or related to the solenoid failed, can't remember). It's just a nice replacement.
                The last one I changed was when I was still a heavy drinker, in the morning, with a headache, with too much coffee.... I loved it [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif[/img]

                  looks good, only concern is, as John Isbell says, does it ensure shuttle stop bolt released and table eccentric released every time.

                    One nearby center has them running on all lanes for a year without problems, we will put 4 in next week.
                    I will let you know.

                      Re: New solenoid

                      we installed one on a lane.... i'm still to be convinced... i've never really had any problems with spotting solenoids.

                      had one go (first in 3 years) so put this on.... it does the job but i could possibly be against change ha ha!

                            Run a few of the solonoid devices as well. Time will tell, I am neither here nor there, but have changed out two solonoids in as many weeks, but took the option of just replacing the soloniod and not installing the new style unit which I have some of in spares.

                              Ours don't have that extension either, but they're rounded so they don't seem to be able to be caught behind the spot cam lever. I think if the force is enough to push the solenoid back (and since it's a pusher, it will have least strength at full extension, which should make it give way nicely), then it should be fine if only being forced for a fairly small time (tens of seconds perhaps). The same as would apply with the standard solenoids if they get stuck open (they buzz, get warm, sound upset, but generally get over it - like my other half [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif[/img]).

                              And I agree - its simplicity is beautiful.
