  • clamping lever is broken!!!

    im not the usual mechanic at my lanes, but ours in on holiday and one of my clamping levers broke, and i am trying to replace it but i cant get the little pins out that holds it all together, and i dont want to try forcing them if thats not how your supposed to do it, so if anyone knows the proper way to change it that would be greatly apprciatted, thanks!!!!

    if you are talking about the roll pins that hold the shaker clamp to the upper shaker frame, you have to knock them out with a punch and a hammer, if you just use a hammer you might mushroom the roll pin, so make sure to use the right sized punch also.

      If you have a spare top frame swap the broken one out with it then repair it later.
