I have a Close Encounters pin. It has a spinner that I’ve never been able to really rip. I read Vid’s recommendations for spinner adjustments. Bought the lube/oil he recommended and did my best to get it to spin as freely as possible. It spins a lot better, but now I noticed it doesn’t register points for every rotation. It’s like it can’t keep up. My question is - Should it? I don’t know what expectations should be for that era pin. If it should, any thoughts on what adjustments should be made? Thank you in advance.
New! Dark mode!
