I have a 1959 Williams Pinch Hitter. Occasionally the bat will chatter when the lever is held in the bat position. The result is a loud noise as the bat seems to vibrate in the swing position. I’ve tried adjusting the bat switch and EOS switch with no luck. Could it be a spring issue? Has anyone every seen this issue before? Any suggestions on what to look at next would be greatly appreciated.

I think the bat chatters sometimes if the EOS is not closed long enough. Try to get the switch leafs as close to the actuator so it stays closed long enough for the bat relays to close again. I have this issue go away on a couple of games by playing with this.
