    I was curious to get reviews and information on the many different models of puck bowlers and bowling ball bowlers that were made back in the day.

    Is there a forum for these enthusiasts? Or maybe a great website that details their specifics and has reviews for them like ipdb?

    The EM hangout is definitely the right place to be for bowler talk. A recent thread was started for us to show off our bowlers. https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/show-us-your-em-bowlers-mechanical-and-old-electrical-toys-in-your-gameroom

    Damn, wish I had room for one. I have passed on a couple good deals.

    Cool. That's a great start.

    I also came across clay's guide about them. That was a good read.

    Yes, Clay's website is a great resource for bowlers.

    To stay on topic I recently saw this one on Craigslist. I thought it was pretty darn cool for the money.

    An early working ball bowler for the price of a shuffle alley project. I think this model has a great look.

    I believe this one belongs to Pinsider Hoopjohn. Seems like a great price.

    They can be VERY hard to find depending on where you live. They seem to be non-existent in California. I got lucky when I found mine. It is huge and takes up a good amount of space. (That fact will probably be what ends up making me sell it. I LOVE the thing, but I am gonna need the room soon)
