SKITTLE PINS AND BALLS

MAINTAINING YOUR SKITTLE EQUIPMENT


Thr vast majority of skittlers prefer to use wooden skittle equipment as opposed to alternatives such as Rubber or Composite Resin Skittle Balls, and Plastic Pins such as Durapin™ Skittle Pins.

We mainly supply wooden equipment, our Skittle Pins are Manufactured from either Sycamore or Beech, whilst our Wooden Skittle Balls are Manufactured from Lignum Vitae or Angelim Vermelho.

The game of Skittles is extremely abusive to Wooden Skittle Pins and Skittle Balls, which will suffer from wear and tear during usage. In order to make your equipment last longer we offer the following advice

• Check the condition of your alley; items such as proud nail heads, loose boards, sharp edges etc, can damage your Skittle Pins and Skittle Balls.
• Ensure any hard surfaces on your skittle alley which your Skittle Pins and Skittle Balls are likely to hit are protected by some form of cushioning (e.g. concrete pit, back of alley etc).
• Store Your Skittle Balls and Skittle Pins in a cool and dry location, don't store next to a heat source.
• Treat your Skittle Pins and Skittle Balls with a protective substance every season or two (dependant on usage). We advise using Linseed Oil, Danish Oil or French Polish, as it fills the pores, and helps protect wood from denting by compression. We advise that you rub down your Skittle Pins or Skittle Balls with a cloth. Remember to allow the protective substance to dry, some oils take longer.
• Stand the pins in a small tray of linseed oil for a short period then turn them the other way up to allow the oil to soak through.
• Rub Linseed Oil or French Polish into your Skittle Ball with a dry cloth.
• Don't oversoak in protective oil as this can soften the wood.

Please note these are suggestions and are for guidance only.
