Strange, you would think whoever owned that equipment would need it for other jobs.

OK, went to the lanes today. And, the desk people are describing the shot diff from what I saw. They didn't bowl on it. So, how do they know?

I never saw the total volume of oil. Just a hand written legend of how much at ev 5 foot intervals. The other lane man obviously copied it from his own machine read out. And, programmed this machine the same way.

One thing I noted that was weird. No oil outside of 8 on the right. But, some oil out to 3 on the left. Don't have an answer for that. Why oil on the left and not the right? Seems reversed to me. More use should get the oil.

July 26 and the back hoe still blocks the drive. How long does the concrete have to cure?
Yeah, that's it 15 days for the concrete to cure.

A few days and you need to keep it wet. If it cures too fast it can crack. Cement creates heat as it cures. Too much and it expands and bad things happen. Patience!

bowled in the new shot yesterday in league.

Used wrong ball to start. Had to use stronger ball. Switched in 7th of first game and struck out for low deuce. Started with a turkey, then went high. left 2 straight splits high. Moved, and went high again. Went back to first ball. After few frames, it went high also. WTH!! 160 2 splits and 2 cherries. the back end got snappy and I lost my length.

third game, used weakest pearl in my bag. Moved right. Mixed results. Couldn't find an outside line that was consistent, 19X. So, 560 on first attempt. Well below average. Had 2 more splits, one I got and 2 more cherries, all on right side spares. Mostly picked the 6 off the 10, 3 X. Spare balls shouldn't hook.

I have a down and in path. Stand at 33 and roll out to 8 at 45 feet. The ball made radical turns out there, and often turned too early. On the outside, I was a board or 2 either way of the pocket. Carried light hits.

Will take some getting used to.

Dennis, You and I must play nearly the same kind of line. Yesterday I went down to throw a few and ended up standing on board 30 and targeting board 12 at the arrows.
Been playing with changing some of the surfaces lately on some balls I've not done very well with. I'm finding that using either a 3000 grit or 4000 grit pad as the final finish is making some those balls to make their turn at near the right spot. If I need to make them go just slightly longer, I'm not sure what sanding adjustment to make. Not sure if some compound is in order or some polish. Guess I need to talk to my PSO and have him help me. Too bad I don't have a ball spinner I guess...

YES, spinners do help. I'm lucky that my Pro Shop lets me use his. But, I much prefer wet sand process over the pads. They are diff.

At Home, I have used things like a borrowed Jayhawk, to my wife's Mix Master.

Oh, my Pro Shop just changed from the rejuvenating oven to a hot water bath process. I don't like it as much at all.

djp, I honestly can't tell you where I am at the arrows. Since our new lanes went in, they have down lane range finder marks. First ones at 40 feet, second at 45.
I target the 8 board at 45. Don't see where my ball crosses the arrows.

Found out our Brunswick center will be replacing the Lane Machine finally with a Kegel Flex Walker at the end of the month. Just when I got use to the pattern it's changing again. Oh well Let's bowl.
