  • REAR ROLLER REMOVAL

    Have an idea for a possible new part. Just wondering though. How many of you out there can get the rear roller out of the machine by sliding it through the hole in the side of the next machine and then pull it out aftr the bounce plate and carpet are out? Not the old way, by sliding the roller into the hole until the roller shaft comes through the kickback and then pull it through the ball exit and back into the pit to get it out.

    Re: REAR ROLLER REMOVAL

    this is what i do. i push it through the hole into the adjacent machine and then move the carpet out of the way. pull it back through and pull the shaft end up towards the backend motor. once the whole roller is out of the hole i pull it through to the backend through the pin wheel. i have 8230's so not sure if you can manouvre the roller like this on 70's

      It depends on how much room there is under the mach. As we push the roller into the hole, we lift up the carpet slack on the next mach. and slide it through to the floor and then pull it out from under the other mach.. That makes it a one shot deal.

          <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">Yeah, that's great but there isn't enough room under our 30's so when it goes through the hole it goes inside the carpet of the next machine. i have the backend running on the next machine to make it easier to push the roller through

                  <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">I do it the old way, not enough room for the ?new? way.
                  What is your idea, is it patent pending??
                  So it goes.

                    I also slide it through and out from under the next machine. In Utah, lane 20 was right up agenst the wall, so I had to pull the roller out with the carpet and bounce plate, 30's style. Needless to say, that was the one I hated the most.

                      as most posts suggest, either thro adjacent machine, or if end machine remove out thro ball door.
                      let us know what you suggest.

                        Sliding it it out the adjacent machine is what we do to. Have a machine also beside a wall, and it's way no fun bringing the rear roller out through the ball door by yourself.

                        I'd rather smear jam on my eye lids and run into a wasps' nest.
