  • Dumb question

    Was bowling league tonight and caused an OOR, no deadwood. I'm a former Brunswick guy and know next to nothing about 82-70's. The place had a "green/new" backend guy. I know on A/A-2's you just clear deadwood pull the OOR hook. On the 82-70's don't you just "hit a sweep reverse" button or switch? It took them 10 minutes to clear an OOR.
    Please excuse the lame question and my igorance. [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif[/img]

      if he was a new guy it may have took him a few minutes to figure out it was an OOR since on a 70 the table comes back up and switches to second ball...it looks like a sweep down.

        Especially confusing for a newbie if there is no deadwood.

          Re: Dumb question

          When I come across a sweep down, the first check is easy if it wasn't already noticed from far away by the clanging. After that is a quick glance at the 9 slot, check to see if there is a pin offspot as I lean in and snap the fingers fully open. I'm sure there are at least a couple other things I do without thinking about them, but those are the main ones.

            An OOR was called back so it shouldnt have been a mystery on what the stop was. But they were using a new walkie talkie type communication system so there may have been communication problems too, I dont know. Thanks guys for the replys!

              sweep down, 2nd ball, cells closed tells you right away what it is.
              Don't mind me, what you read is invisible.

                10 minutes to clear an OOR.?

                Well there is a huge problem there!! Did the tech pass out momentarily, or was there something on TV he was really riveted by?

                I was bowling in my countries world cup qualifier last weak and my god! They had the "NEW" health and safety pish which they had to follow. You know turning off the machines either side to fix a fault!
                Well...I have never seen such nonsense. At one point my good friend James and colleague, shouted over to me 8 lanes down, "Look at this Al". I looked over in his direction and couldn't believe that the lower 8 lanes in the centre were all off!! Sweeps down! Utterly crazy! All for the sake of a pile up and perhaps a ball jam? It was ludicrous!
                I mean it was crazy. Tournament bowlers were hitting the sweeps! Due to the fact the machines either side of the faulty machine were getting the sweeps put down and the poor bowlers weren't noticing. (The sweeps were being put down during there shots, so they weren't to blame)
                A total pile of pants if you ask me!!

                  Actually I believ you have to hold the Sweep Run and Sweep Reverse switches at the same time to get the sweep to move in the correct direction. Just simply pushing the sweep reverse button will not move the sweep.

                  Just my 2 cents worth

                      BTW, there is no such thing as a "dumb question" if you don't know the answer - you'll never know unless you ask!

                        I miss the sweep reverse and 2nd cycle switches off the 70s.

                        Jon, what say you rig us up a chassis that could do that? Would take you about 10 minutes, right? [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif[/img]

Are you going to be at Triangle and what times. I may stop in if I choose to head that direction. What time would be a non busy time for you.
