              <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">But the old saying goes..."It takes a good Brunswick mechanic to be an AMF mechanic/tech"

              Right Drill?

                Anyone can read a meter but not everyone can wrench.

                    Each to his own,everyone has a valid opinion, I have worked as a pin boy, and on both AMF and Brunswick and am definitely a tinker and proud to be called a Technician.

                          Hey all just my 2 cents but i work on amf's that are at my home center. The owner of my center owns a brunswick center that has been flooded out and i am refurnishing those brunswick A-2. I have found in my experiences that the brunswicks are machines a mechanic needs to work on when dealing with amf 82-70's you need to know not only how to wrench but an extensive electrical back ground but to be honest both have their ups and downs but i would rather work on amf's because i can at any time get the machine to stop if by chance i am caught in it. but in about 2 years i will be saying goodbye to amf's so i kinda have no choice but i would preffer amf

                              Never worked on a masher just me 30's and helped at a 70's. I did work at a centre that had brunswick (insert model no????) as a manager and all i knew was that they spent all day re-welding those green conveyer bands.
