I found this at an estate sale for $20, broken (the pin setter would not raise at all). The fix required more than a few popsicle sticks, a healthy amount of superglue, and a lot of slow, patient carving with a Dremel. In the end, I got the custom built wooden arms (and accordingly glued custom built wooden cam follower) to attach to the original apparatus without any glue, screws, or other affixations - the carved receivers in the wooden arms simply mesh (almost) perfectly with the existing mechanism.

i am trying to find detailed parts list for this game so i can try to make
a upscaled version of it. Eldon Industries - Hawthorne, California Early
1950's ( as UNGAR) on into the late1970's Leading manufacturer of plastic
"Selectronic" brand slot car sets. Also famous for "Skee-Ball" and
"Bowl-A-Matic" games. Products also inclded a wide variety of very
inventive plastic toy cars. trucks and boats. They were aquired by Cox
Industries in 1979. then aquired by a few other companies so i lost track
now. i wanted to see if i could get a break out picture of the game showing
all the parts but don't look like i can find them. that is why i would love
to find a broken one i could tear aprt to study. anyone know where i could
get any parts detailed pictures or diagrams? i can not afford to buy the
game at the high prices it goes for now as i am disabled and on a low
disability income. beyond my reach. just would have liked to try and make
one twice its size. i have bowling pins and balls twice the size of what
the game has. just thought it would be fun to try and make a bigger
version. anyone got info that could help let me know.

There's a crank at the other end - the shaft runs all the way down under
the left side of the lane, and turns a worm gear than drives the entire
mechanism. The only manual task is grabbing the pins out of the rear bin
(where they wind up after the lane sweeper pushes them back) and loading
them into the pinspotter. The ball is launched from the hand of a little
plastic bowling guy, whose arm is hooked up to a pinball-style plunger, but
you can also aim him left/right.

$20? I paid $515 for one about 10 or more years ago! Unfortunately the
crank mechanism has frozen and I don't know how to fix it :(

My friend Mark Sullivan got one for xmas and boy, was I jealous. Wanted one
of these real bad. Don't know why my parents got me the golf-a matic
instead. Anybody remember that one? Just had to get another Skittlebowl
game which is more fun.

And my worm gear thing broke so I had to turn the ball return wheel to make
it work. It really ruined my Christmas that year.

I seem to have the same problem on one I just aquired. Would you be able to
please explain how you "unfroze" the white wheel? When the crank is turned
the worm drive turns but the white toothed wheel stays put. Thank you!
