Brunswick a2 pinsetter training    Brunswick Factory Certified
Training School®

The Brunswick A-2 Pinsetter has been the workhorse of the bowling industry ever since it was introduced in the late 1950's. We realize the importance of keeping these machines operating at peak performance, for the longest time possible. That's why Brunswick is recommending Frank Miroballi's Precision Pinsetter Service as the exclusive, certified Brunswick A-2 Pinsetter Maintenance School to help you meet your maintenance training needs.

The Certified Brunswick A-2 Pinsetter Training School is a twelve consecutive day course designed specifically to meet the needs of your center mechanic. We explain the theory of operation of the entire pinsetter, including the electrical system, gear box, detector, turret, and all major subassemblies of the machine. Next, we teach you how to remove and repair these major components, including adjustments that make the pinsetter operate as smoothly as possible. And there's nothing more important to a pinsetter as safety and preventative maintenance, which are things we emphasize throughout the course.


An evaluation of the student's performance during the class will be provided to the sponsoring bowing center manager or owner. This evaluation includes information about exams the student took during the course, how well they learned the material, their troubleshooting ability, and overall class participation.

We also supply each graduating student who passes the course with a certificate of completion, and a certified mechanic's card.
