Cricket bowling machine

Postby State187 » Tue Mar 10, 2020 11:41 am

I want to build a Bowling machine. There's quite a few guides for baseball pitching but most are nonsense. Anyone have ideas using locally sourced equipment?

Lmao.

But on a serious note, why do you want the bowling machine?

Lol one day you'll see a EK bakkie on the road

Thanks Robin, although that's more a toy. I want a Bowling machine that is powerful enough to bowl around 150kph, I don't see why this can't be done with an air compressor up to task.

Thanks man. The first one retails at 200 usd so maybe worth looking into. The only issue would be needing 110v. I wanted to do something Diy though but sometimes it's not worth it I guess.

I made by own machine using youtube and gathering knowledge form here and there though it worked slow but with high RPM motors DC motors and speed controllers and using arduino you can even made your own device easily.

Did you use the torque converter with the 50/20 ratio ?
