  • OOR

    How do you guys clear an OOR with a pin in the flat gutter where the table manages to descend far enough to grasp the standing pins and goes back up with pin s in the cells? Tonight we had a chaser clear the OOR like normal. He cleared the deadwood and reversed the sweep. He then cycles the machine so it spotted wood on wood. I scolded him later on because he made a mess and could have broken something. The way I clear the situation is to run the sweep through from 66 to 270 and back to 0 to get rid of the deadwood. I then climb to the top of the machine and run the table down with TA1 to release the pins from the cells. Any help appreciated.

    You can actualy adjust the bolt that activates the OS switch so that you get an off spot with on deck wood, but not with gutter wood.

    I rarly encounter this. if I do, I sweep the dead wood, and manualy run the table (leaving the sweep at 2nd guard until I drop the pins)

    I then adjust the OS bolt.

      Don't get it often but when I do, I just run the sweep thru with the contacts in the chassis stopping the sweep just before 270 (I trust NO ONE at the other end of the lane) run the table with the contacts to let go of the pins, then run the sweep the rest of the way to 270 and let it go to 0 by itself. I'm too lazy to lean over to the cams from the top so I just do it thru the contacts. We usually only get false offspots when the small bearings in the yoke of the table drive are shot (I think that's the name, whatever the clevis screws onto lol)
      All I want in life is to turn wrenches and climb around pinsetters/pinspotters again :/

          Testing myself, haven't studied the parts book well enough lately lol. I know where things are just forget the proper names a bit too often for my taste [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif[/img] Plus, we all have little nicknames for parts so I try to use the proper terms on here so there's no confusion [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif[/img]

              I have MP's so I can clear them with the table and sweep run buttons on the side of chassis. We never had any flat gutter OOR until new lanes and flat gutters were installed. I have started putting springs on bottom of tables to knock over pins standing in gutter as table decends. (Thanks to Masternut)

                If I see nobody on the approach, with no deadwood I just cycle the table from the contactors. With deadwood, sweep run to guard, pinfork deadwood, cycle table and reverse sweep.

                      I've thought about making a hook similar to a sardine can key. Flattened end with a hole drilled in it. Screws in with the top contactor. Give it a little tug and eliminate those 'hair-raising' moments. Or just convert all the chassis to bowl-tronics boards with the buttons.

                            Can you explain the spring thing or show a picture?

                            Thanks in advance
