  • Table cable question

    Along time ago... in a galaxy far, far away, I saw in a manual the proper lengths that the wires are supposed to be cut to in order to make and replace your own. I have made many with giving a lot of extra, and with all that extra just makes it all the more mess to install. Hope someone has the answer to this. It's much easier to make cable assy' out of machine than in for sure. Thanks all! [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif[/img]

    Unless you are still using pin indication on your maskings. You might think of doing what I did. I tied all my respot wires together. I have only 2 wires going up into the wire way. I also pull my micro switch off the back of the table.
    If I can get this new digital working. I'll take a couple of photo's and post them.

    Those with camera's can do it even better. No wires at all.

      We did it using only one wire that goes to all the cells and up to the TAC board.

      You use two? Is the other one a ground? And is it really needed? Our one wire set up works just fine.

        I was going to use one wire. But didnt like the idea of everything revolving on one wire. Guess I have always played it safe and have a back-up. I'm sure one wire would be just fine. I just sleep easier knowing if that wire gets broke or pulles loose. I still have another one there working.

          I neutered my machines when I installed expanders. I have some table cables I would sell for $5.00 to $10.00 each plus freight.
          PM me if interested.

            I just installed 8 refurbished 8270's from AMF. NO table wires. Ready to strip all wires from my other 14 machines. They don't do anything

              We still use our pindicator lights. I wish I could figure out how to get the pin count info/ball count off the camera scanner port, convert it to the masking unit. Eliminate the table wiring and chasis to pindicator plug.

                JMHO; table wires are an easy way of seeing what your scoring is doing
