    Anyone ever change out a detent? Just bought a machine that tosses a ball about 15'. $47 bucks for part. Hope it is easy to install.

    It is an easy install, some gorilla tape, a small wrench, and a screwdriver for the worm gear clamps (2). It should come with instructions - if not, there used to be some pdf instructions on the Lobster site. There is a little air bleed hole that must not be covered (12:00 position).

    These older pneumatic machines are still great, fairly trouble free, yet they are fairly simple to work on. The detent will need to be changed every 2-4 years (primary wear part). Other than that, maybe a toggle switch.

    Sometimes Lobster customer service is OK; last time for me it sucked and I went to Tennismachines for assistance.

    Good luck, holler if you need assistance.
