      Re: weird pinsetters...

      If they're slow as molasses, and the new pins hang down at about a 45 degree angle, you're looking at an AMF 82-30. Vintage late '50's to early 60's, although if I missed by a year or two, the AMF mechs here will surely correct me.

        8230s are the supreme antique of the bowling industry. Owning one of those is like owning a piece of history.

                  They ARE majestic ol' buggers. Fun to watch them run. There's a 40 lane house nearby with them, some of them will run & run. Some of them will puke pins out on the lane every half-hour !

                  I'll take the 70's !

                    i like it when there's a pin jam at the 1.2.3 area and the pins go over the table to the pindeck and pins go cartwheeling three lanes. fun to watch from upfront.
