One other thing I have found that makes a world of difference- the wires on the side of the spinner need to be very carefully adjusted so that as it spins their ends are not wobbling. Very carefully hold a flash light and hit the wire ends sticking out from the mounting bracket with the light (the spot you will hit with a drop of lube) and spin it- you should not see a blurring of the wire ends as they wobble up and down. That wobble can sap huge amounts of the energy of the spin and drastically reduce how many spins a solid hit will yield.
I will add this as a warning. Be very carefull adjusting these- its basically piano wire which can take a few bends but any back and forth bending and it becomes brittle as hell and snaps off cleanly at your bend point. Dont ask how I know this- you can presume I have experimental evidence....
I would also add that if you have two spinners on a machine- adjust the switch blade and everything else so they are basically identical and then see if one spins markedly better than the other. It is at this point That I would suggest you inspect both as I suggested and if you see one side wobbling- if you do pull them both and make the poor performing one look like the good one and see how it works.
I had a spinner that was never quite as good as its mate on a symmetrical playfield- then I finally got around to actually looking at the wire ends and noted one wobbling and the other stable. I pulled them out and bent the poor one to match the good one and from then on- they both function beautifully.
Just FYI. Because spinners are asymmetric and the wires are not perfectly centered with the mass of the spinner- the optimal wire bending is not at right angles from the spinner- its bent a little bit - apparently to offset the flex induced by the offset in the mass on the spinner itself- on mine, they work exceedingly well if the wire bends a little bit further than 90 degrees so its pointing slightly away from the heavy side of the spinner- if that makes sense. It makes sense that this slight adjustment would keep it straight as the mass of the spinner blade would act to pull the wire straight as it spins. This also makes sense in that if at its highest rotational velocity you have the wire bent so that it can spin with the least friction it would work better... I cannot speak to weather this is a built in design as all my spinners are 40 +yrs old and I have made them to work well- maybe new spinners come with perfect 90's on the wire coming out of the spinner... Maybe they are different... I dont know. I do know that on an 1976 EM this was the trick.
