  • Deck Sheilds

    Quote: Originally posted by Goodgreaf in another topic.

    We run all our 26 lanes without shields. As far as I can tell, the shields (piled up against the back wall) are all originals, with lots of ripped mounting points and the repairs have started to fall apart. They kept falling half off, and catching under the pit light as the deck lifts, smashing the tube, damaging the light fitting, and lifting the pit light / step assembly so far that the support from the top of the frame bends, and 1 or 2 have actually snapped. About 18 months ago, the head tech pulled them all off until he could get enough money to do them.


    I had this problem too. After pricing them from Brunswick ($50 Ea) I go to thinking. I have a friend who runs a sheet metal shop. I asked him if he could make them, and he said sure. The only problem he had was the slotted bolt holes. Over sized holed, and large washers fixed that. He made us 21 for $10 a piece. They worked great!! The only problen with installing them was to put the curve in the front. I measured to center, and used some old paint cans to form them.

    Just thought I'd pass this along, and maybe save someone a little $$$.. [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif[/img]

      repairing deck sheids can be done by using two fender washers one the front and pop riviting a metal strip on each back end. digger

        problem is, most of our shields have already been repaired at least once, using zot kits, big washers or spare sheet metal. The repairs have started to fall apart. The deck shields basically need to be replaced, but head office won't let us spend the money

          Same here goodgreaf..

          Some of the holes were 3-5 inches in diameter. They were bent really bad too. Had one patched with duct tape. Replacement was our only option.

          As to going without them, owners diddn't like that too much, and neither did I. :p
