  • Slowing down ball wheels on Bruns As

    Does it make sense to slow down A ball wheels ? If so why ?
    Thanks

    What size is your sheave on the ball wheel jack shaft?

      Less ball damage and no pins in the underground. We did ours here years ago with excellent results!

        Slowing down A's has the same benefits as slowing down A-2's. It is rarer to have undergrounds with A's as the lift rods are longer and the pin has a better chance of falling off before it gets to the top of the lift rods...but slowing them down will allow a little more time just like slowing down an A-2.

            I used to average 14 pin on track ball calls a week and some pins in subway once in awhile before i slowed down my ball wheels on my A's..

            I'm lucky i see 7 pin on track ball calls a month now, have not had one pin in subway since i did that i think 8 years ago or more...

            Ball damage way down also...

            And many more benefits...
