    The Pat Trap at my club throws uneven doubles the left bird is lower then the right bird.
    The machine is level. The machine is a singles, doubles, wobbles machine, could use a little help with this
    Thanks

    There is a little figure (about 6 inches long) way in the back were the targets sits that you can push forward and back. It might be tight, but push or pull on in to even out the targets. A little move goes a long way.

    Look at the Pat Trap manual, it's a simple adjustment of the doubles finger to get the targets even.

    You want to lower the right bird relative to the left, correct? As paul says, move the "doubles finger" back just a bit and check your progress. The field will shift a bit as well (moving right, I think) so you have to tweak that a bit as well. It's a question of a bit of this, a bit of that, but you can eventually set a matched pair and then, knowing about how little movement will get you where you want, it's duck soup next time.

    There are more than one finger available, if yours is the short one I would call Amy and order the latest. It makes the targets closer together.

    But as Neil said, it's simple to adjust. I leave it only mildly tight so I can bump it with the handle of my harley Davidson Adjustable wrench. After I have it right I tighten it down.

    Make sure you level the base, NOT the launch plate.
