  • Quality pin wheels

    I have a quality pin wheel with those pockets you can replace(i didn't order it,it was here from old guy),i get turn pan jams,pin head first due to bad pockets,the pins fall out of pockets alot too,all is aligned,speed is fine.
    Have you run into this problem with worn out pockets,i have at least 3 bad pockets.I'd like to change the p/w with and old one from a model a but it looks like a hassle so i'll get some pockets.Are those pockets softer so they don't last or ?
    Pinwheel doesn't look old at all,probably 2 years old.
    Use what you have to,to get it through the shift then fix it right.Do it right and live through the night...Safety first!

    Got one. We installed it in 95 or 96. Still looks brand new.

      If anyone needs pinpockets we have them. Suggest you try one or a few to make sure they work in your situation. Jim

        These pinwheels aren't worth crap on old pins. We had a ton of jams on the 5 lanes worth we have until we got new pins. Since then we've had no problems at all.

        The old pins will wedge themselves in the pockets due to the wood compressing inside them.

          I had a quality pin wheel which i installed the murrey pockets and have had no problems the pockets might be a little smaller but carry the pins up fine.

            Quality makes the best pinwheel I've seen. If you have problems with some pockets...it has to be a fluke. Buy a few new pockets from Murrey and your problems will go away.

              I think that all molded plastic pockets are subject to some variation ... I bought 4 wheels from murrey this year, and we found issues with about 4 pockets. They replaced the pockets (at no charge, thanks), and now everything is looking good:

              I tried the brunswick modular, the only good thing I can say is it was quiet, didn't work as well as the worn-out all steel 40+ year old A wheel it replaced.

              One thing I found that helps is to switch the pin wiper spring from the bottom of the wiper where it bolts on to the top of the wiper. This gives more clearance near the turn pan (where you WANT the pin to let go) and at the same time moves the bottom of the wiper closer to the pinwheel where you want it to grab:
