      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.

                          Rake sweeping out of time, and pin launching onto lane.

                          I work on some nice old Brunswick A-2 pin setters. Most issues I've come across haven't been to problematic to figure out. But being I can't seem to get it to recreate the issue...
