  • 22 – 23 pins in 18 GSX machine with 8 spare pins.

    I have 22 – 23 pins in each GSX machine, 18 machines total with 8 spare pins (new).

    I’m trying to convince my boss to purchase a significant quantity of pins (27 cases) as opposed to buying pins only when we need to replace them.
    The cost for the buying 27 cases @ 3 cases/month for 9 months is $5,117.44.

    The cost for the one time purchase is $3,491.64 with 3 monthly payments of $1,163.88.

    The cost savings $1,625.80 for the next year doesn’t seem to be enough to sway him.

    Any ideas?

    Why yes, I do have a 3 lb sledge hammer.

    Unless they have changed the rule all pin in each pinsetter should have similar were on them, and if you pull all pins out 1 or 2 lanes and use in other machines bowlers will complain, some because pins some because they are not. One of the owners wanted to replace half the pins here each year so I replace all pins every 2 years. Would like to replace all pins each year but they hold up so well with the GSX machines they are still in good shape when we pull them out. I also buy several cases extra in case of breakage. I would replace everything at once if it were me.
