    Those were always fun to watch but I never worked on one. I just go back to the 4400 days. LOL

      My guess is that not many were built

          I'd be interested in seeing its immediate successor -- I thought I'd read somewhere that an 82-20 was built, but either my google-fu is weak, or there aren't any references to it online.

          Something else that caught my eye was how the pin cups slid forward to create the triangle -- kinda reminds me of the Mendes machine.

            IIRC I believe this was just a prototype and the first commercial pinspotter was the 82-30. Really freakin' cool though.

                      ...the story I got on these 8210s is that they were introduced at an event attended by bowling proprietors. The machines were in a garage across the street from where the convention was being held. Supposedly there were orders placed but these machines were never made other than the two prototypes. Can you imagine the noise from the vacuum motor having to have enough pull to keep the pins in the cups? The 8230 with the chain between the table and the chassis was supposedly the first pinspotter that went into production, 3900 chassis? I'm only saying what I heard and understood. Anyone chime it with additions or corrections.
