  • Bin Straps _ AMF Shuttles

    Okay I was thinking Normal is the 5, 7, 8, 9 & 10pins... Which I use.

    Now, What Locations do you'll use and why did you choose to Place them there?

    The Old Head Mechanic here used all Pin Locations and I Personally Don’t see why?

    everywhere but the head pin. adds strength to the assembly, helps to keep the shuttle from widening at all bins. doesn't hurt anything.
    Don't mind me, what you read is invisible.

      Not necessary to have them on every pin, but as mentioned, it dont hurt. the only down side I can see is more possibilities for straps to break. This is a possible pin nicking issue, so there are more to change, and more often. Smaller centers probably wont even notice a difference in extra work.

          Try the Stahls bin strap. It will never break.

              There is not enough room between the shuttle and cup on many machines.

              Use 2 bin straps on the 7 and 10. Use 1 on all others but the #1 pin.

                    not a fan of the thick straps either. Had too many instances where longer bolts had to be used, and they chewed the hel out of the pincups.

                      Use the Stahl's Tuffy straps on your 7 and 10 pin holders. Use the thin metal ones on your 4-5-6 pin areas. Don't put one on the 9 pin slot. When you are done use a tape measure from the left corner front to the right corner back--right corner front to the left corner back. Make sure the distances are equal--this will assure the assembly is square!!! Don't mix the AMF pin holders with the Stahl's metal ones, you'll have no problems doing it this way.

                          Table head We don't use the one in the 9 pin spot because the 9 bin switch already pushes the pin a little forward and it is not needed to keep the pin in the bin.

                              Well said Lafarge--I've also experienced pins not shuttling @ the 9 pin slot with AMF brown or rubber pin holders--causing a lot of pin jams at the #9. The switch pushes the pins forward and catches on the holders or the strap.
