    Re: pins on floor

    Brunswick makes a particle board shield that goes across the back of the machine that supposed to keep pins inside the pinsetter. Many centers have some version of this shield(mine are homemade) Make sure that your pinwiper and turnpan adjustments are correct as this will reduce the number of pin that are thrown out. Balls can also carry pins up the liftrods high enough to pitch them out the back and onto the floor.

      A pin deflector cord will stop most of the pins being carried up by a ball.
      and then he said, "on your death bed, you will receive total consciousness" so I got that going for me...... which is nice!

        check your turnpan and pinguide adjustments. also check for worn cross conveyor belts. check top pinwheel guide rollers. also check cross conveyor mirco switch, if out of adjustment pinwheel will not stop as required.
