The Kid Should See This

How does a bowling alley work?

How do the bowling pins at a bowling alley get set up so quickly and efficiently after you’ve bowled them over with your bowling ball? Ask Matt Bowlin, a Boise State University student and a pinsetter mechanic. In this video, he shares seven mostly-behind-the-scenes components of pin-setting operations: The ball pit, the ball accelerator, the pin elevator, the distributor, the setting table, the sweep wagon, and the drive frame.
