    This may seem like a dumb question but want to be sure before I ruin a bracket. I have old bally spinners and Gottleib spinner brackets. The bracket holes are too small for the bally spinner wire. Can I just drill the holes larger or will that cause some problem with the spinner binding up.

    Of course, they'll be ruined for Gottliebs, but making the hole bigger shouldn't be an issue. Height and width are critical. And those little nylon washers are vital to keeping the link wire straight.

    I don't know if I've done that exactly, but I do recall having to make spinner bracket holes bigger for stuff to fit, so maybe I did without knowing it?

    Thanks you. Wanted to make sure it would work before I ruin 3 good brackets.

    Well, try ruining one and test fit it to make sure it works before attacking the other two...
