  • Murrey curtains

    I feel a little apprehensive writing this post. Don't get the wrong idea. I not trying to bash Murrey products just giving some constructive critisium. I have 30 Murrey pit curtains and 2 Brunswicks in my house. If any oil does get on the Murrey curtains it still reflects the shiny spots and it is harder to clean.
    Also all the rivets that hold the curtain rods in are popping loose after only 2-3 years of service. The Bruns are showing no wear.
    Murrey if you are listening I hope that you are going to do as good of a job on product improvement as you did on your catalog.

    Re: Murrey curtains

    Hi TPJ:
    Murrey tries to always listen and react accordingly. In regards to the pit curtain we would welcome the opportunity to improve the product. JBEES brought to our attention the rubber welding material used was drying out somewhat prematurely and the weld was pulling away. It then put added stress on the rivets and eventually broke away. Thanks to JBEES we are using a different rubber weld material and appear to have the situation corrected. Is that what happened on your curtains? As far as the cleaning of the oil from the curtains are you using a degreaser? We have a lot of success with our PS-99. Let me know and I'll send you some to try. Believe it or not, the only way to improve certain things is to take constructive criticism as a positive, not a negative. When the advice comes from the world's premier technicians, one better listen..........Bill [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif[/img]

      Bill
      Thank you for the quick reply. Yes I would like to try your PS 99 on the curtain.
      What do you suggest I use to fix the curtains.
      I would imagine pop rivets would be the answer if I could find them big enough.

          Sorry about not responding sooner, but have been out of the office attending BOWL EXPO all last week. I am sending a gallon of PS-99 to you. Let me know how you like it. Thanks for your help....Bill [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif[/img]

              I just got your PS99 cleaner/degreaser and tried it out. It works really good. Thank you. I guess I will be buying more of your product.

                Hi John:
                Thank you for the kind words. Murrey tries very, very hard to take care of situations which arise. We sell a lot of PS-99. Most techs are a bit tentative to use a "water soluable" degreaser. However, years ago when we formulated the product it was for use in our pinsetter rebuilding plant. We were stunned how gentle it was on the hands, yet cut through grease without those harsh solvents. Once techs like yourself find out about it, it's tough to go back to anything else.
                Looking forward to working with you and your entire organization for a long, long time.
                Thanks again....Bill [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif[/img]

                  does it leave a residue if you use it on turn pans and x conveyor pans?

                    Re: Murrey curtains

                    I would imagine it does as with all those part water part soap cleaners. I was just looking for a way to clean those dimpled pit curtains that Murrey sells. All the other cleaners left a spot that still looked wet, but the PS99 blended in with the rest of the curtain.
