  • Complete yolk assy

    I was just wondering how many of you guys had a complete yolk assy on hand and ready in case one breaks. We have a yolk but if one breaks I have to transfer parts.

    I was just thinking how much easier it would be to have one set up and ready to change as a whole assembly.

    Thanks

    Yes we do, and yes it is. With a little practice (didnt ask for it, but got it none the less) you can get the spotter up and running in about half an hour. (or less is things go perfectly)

      We have one. I feel it is very important to have as many complete assemblies as possible no mater how large the center is. The quicker you can get the machine operable the quicker it can make money and keep the boss man happy.

        We have them assembled in several stages.

        -Complete with cups
        -Everything except cups (Cups to be added when above complete unit is installed)

        The complete one saves on machines down time. Then the near-complete one can be completed when I have time on my hands (when the hell is that??)LOL.

        Some guys I've known build it up complete, but with only the 1-5-8-9 cups installed. It makes it lighter and easier to handle in the machine. The remaining cups are on hand with the caps on loose, and can be quickly slid on over the ends of their shafts.

        I prefer to pull the table out onto the lane, if I have time on that machine. Gives me a chance to check out the rest of the table thoroughly. I just hate putting a brand new yoke on an old worn out crappy table!

          We also have a complete assembly ready. Good thing we did because recently had one break right by one of the bearings. Put, the spare in in no time and had the machines up and running.

            I have a complete yoke assembly ready, as well as a complete table assembly.

            Depends on the situation on which one I use.

                I have a complete yoke assy. bolted to the spare table assy.Just unbolt the yoke and go.Much easier than transferring parts over.

                  I understand the complete yolk assy. What benifit is there to having a complete table assy? It seems more work to change the whole table rather thans to just change the yolk? I am sure there is a reason, please enlighten me.

                    I think it's easier to change the table then the yoke. Only reason I have a spare table is because I'm rebuilding all of them. Converting to 82/90 fingers, and replacing all bushings. They look great clean, and run super after I rebuild them. Everything operates smooth.

                    I have a 4 wheel cart to roll the tables around on, so if you don't have one of those I guess it could be a pain.

                      The tables at my place were in such bad shape that they had to be rebuilt.I would put the spare in then take the table outside and hose it down then bring it to the shop take it apart then put it back together

                          Time, how much? would always change the yoke assy. first. I have a complete table assy. and its my last resort.

                            It takes me an hour to change, and do all adjustments to the table when I change it. I have help though. That way I don't have to remove the counter balance springs.

                              Wise move to have one . if the centre wont let you buy complete, just keep purchasing parts until you have it finished.You only have to reset the yoke and not necessarily the table.a lot of times even that is not necessary, run it see how it works and wait till you have the time. To set a yoke is only as long as it takes to do the two adjustments and spotting of the pins.
