Ball Bowlers Last response: July 8, 2010 12:45 AM in Other Consumer Electronics Share Anonymous June 20, 2010 9:31:05 PM Hello, Is anyone familiar with the 1950's and 60's ball bowling machines? I went on this site: http://www.stl-bb.com and they do restorations of these old machines. Is anyone familiar with what I should look for as good restoration in a machine for sale?

The 1956 model you are looking at is a small ball bowler, using 3" balls and has no gutters. A lot of people prefer the larger 4.5" ball, and games with gutters (and even multiple games, basically 1962 to 1973.) See the above websites for more info. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
