  • Brunswick B10: When were they manufactured?

    I'm researching the Brunswick B10, and can't seem to find the years of production. Anyone know?

    Thanks!

    I would assume it was before 1951, but I don't know for sure.

            Here's a little history from http://oldbowling.com/

            As early as 1909, there were a good number of manual pinsetter and automatic pinsetter inventions. Some of the inventors were Ernest Hedenskoog, Frank Hobbs, Angus Cameron, J. C. McFarland, Jakob Heinemann, Walter Wheeler, Harry and Frank Estabrook, Howard Redfield and others. The most prolific of these was Norwegian inventor Ernest Hedenskoog. He was put on the payroll of Brunswick in 1911 as the “in house” inventor and was responsible for many of the Brunswick patents including the B-1 and B-10 semi-automatic pinsetter used by pinboys of the time. In the late 1920’s, Brunswick had an automatic that was actually installed in a bowling alley. Photographs of this pinsetter can be seen in the “Bowling Is Our Business” video listed in the video section.

              I saw that website, yes. The guy who invented it was put on the payroll in 1911, and he must have had a long career there. I even have an electronic copy of the B10 manual, and there isn't a single copyright date or anything. Hmmmm!!!
