  • Hi everybody! I am a new guy.

    Hello everyone. Just was surfing around when I stumbled onto this site. Pretty neat, I must say. Anyway, I have been working on the A2's for about four years. I currently work in a 40 lane center in Indiana. I am the B mechanic for this center. Hope to, one day, become a Head Mechanic.

    Anyway, I just wanted to make my presence known. I will try to check in to help people out, and I hope that you guys can help me out when I need it.

    Bye for now,

            I would like to take the time to welcome you to Bowl Tech. i am a 2 1/2 year mechanic at a 24 lane house in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. I work on the Brunswick A-2's. One day I hope to become the head mechanic also, and to own my own bowling center as well.
