  • ball damage

    Anyone got any hints to help stop ball damage, in the area of the spring rod, ball carries the pin up and gets caught at the spring rod and just chews the hell out of the balls. I have the bungie cords on all the machines, but lately we have had quite a few balls get ate up. What do you guys think of the Zot stud mod kits??
    (sort of funny on one ball, cause it wasnt mine, we have been putting new carpet up and I set a small roll in the gutter on lane 32 to get to another roll. Later that night guy calls me and said you wont beleive what I found in the machine - a roll of carpet !! - he didnt see the roll when he started the phoenix machine up and it pushed the roll into the pit, ball and carpet up the rods and it really chewed the ball up)

    Install a "PIN FLIPPER"(a 12"pipe) to elevator frame to flip pins.
