You don't need to be good at bowling if you're good at engineering.

Summary: I made a bowling ball with James Bruton where it will steer left and right depending on how you lean. People lean anyways when the bowl to try and influence the direction so we just capitalized on that. It operates on the same principles of a BB8 ball.

Thanks to Carlyle tools for giving my workbench tools a seriously needed upgrade!

  • It is very possible to strike throwing straight. You just have to make sure you throw it about 22 mph to get pins to scatter and bounce of thei other pins. I know straight bowlers that avg in the 200's

  • I'd love to see a video of Mark detailing the processes and mechanics of any of the pinsetters, such as the Brunswick A/A-2/Jetback, GS series, or AMF 82-30, 82-70, or 82-90/XL. 👍 If you agree!
