  • VIDEOS POSTED ON MAINTAINING THE A2. PLEASE CHECK IT OUT!!!

    Hey everyone,
    Here are the videos I made on how we maintain our Brunswick A2 machines on a weekly basis. Please let me know good or bad on these videos that I have posted. I recommend watching them in order but your choice. Thank you for your time. Here is the first one. There should be 3 videos, step 1, step 2, and step 3.

    The sound quality is much better in the more recent videos. They seem to get better each time.
    If it's broke it will work great.... until you stop watching it.

          I like what you are doing with this. I'm going to show this to my guys to give them a better idea of what to look for during routine maintenance. Could save some $ in major repairs. Keep stressing safety, and keep those videos coming.

            Yes, it will be very helpful to many. It's always good to know what others do so you can add their experience to your own; that's how most industries develop. Don't forget to re-grease your sweep hook block and oil your holding hook and post.

            It's great to see inspections in conjunction with cleaning. I don't see that too often, I am a HUGE fan of inspections. Great work.

            Just a couple of things...yes I know, it's him again.
            I was never discouraged from walking on the elevator when I first started; in fact, all of us would do it. It wasn't until, one day, when working with another tech in one of our other centres. We were working on a 1:1 and had tools "carefully" placed everywhere. The guy I was with answered another call, only to return to the machine we were working on via the elevator plank. Out of the corner of my eye, while I was standing in the workshop, I see him slip and fall landing his tailbone on the edge of the elevator plank before his feet landed on my tool box, then fell back with his back landing on the back of the elevator frame. I went pail for him. It was all caught on camera...I wish I could publish it. From then on I understood why we must to refer to it as a "tool rest" and not a "catwalk" and encourage others to use it accordingly. This is something that should be added to the safety warning at the beginning of the service manual and should serve as a reminder to the dangers of using the elevator plank for the wrong purpose.

            Please don't let me discourage you from continuing with your videos; there's always something to be learned from each other.

                Kanga, keep being that guy cuz I never heard of a elevator plank! Had to read it twice to understand and you make a good point. I will try to post more videos ase things go wrong but it does not happen that often here. During the summer I get to do a 1:1 and I am going to try and make a video of that.

                  Kanga, we have warning stickers on our rear guards from the BPA of Michigan that it is "prohibited to use the elevator platform as a catwalk."

                        I always figured it was called a "catwalk" because you should only walk on it if you have 9 lives.
                        You don't have to be crazy to do this job...But it helps!

                          Is there any Videos that you would like me to try and make??? I am waiting for something to break to make another video but it is taking way to long for something to happen. Any ideas on what you would like to see?

                              Well number 3 and 4 I am making a video when my yearly maintaining comes up after league is over and those 2 should be on there. Umm the 1 and 2 I am semi confused abit, I never make any adjustments to the ball wheel but the lift rods I may adjust at some time and the only adjustments to the pin wheel would be the pin guide adjustment or if you are wondering about magnetic cluch are the only adjustments I can think of. Otherwise you stumped me.
