    Excellent work. I haven't seen the ones I work on taken apart anywhere near that much since 2011 when I had to pick the best 8 pinsetters worth of everything out of 12 tired ones. I've taken parts out and improved them since. The house had been all tenpin and not full of bowlers until a nearby 12 lane candlepin house went bust. I like how you solved the problem of the angles on the bottom of the tubes being snowflakes. I usually remove a broken tube and weld it so I won't have the tube deck full of holes. I've changed the latching system and the curtain hangers to new designs, but you can find those in old threads.

    Great work! I would love to see some video, especially of the pit and how the ball and pins are lifted.

    What's new in candlepin?

    Wow! I had forgotten about this site! I haven't been here in almost 10 years! I've been going through some of the old posts, and wish I was here to help some of you.

    Do any candlepin mechanics still use this site? Who is here and where are you from?

    Here are some pics of some of my more recent work...
