    The arm on our Winchester trap is stopping(sometimes) after throwing the target. A slight push on it will make it come around and get next target. What is needed to fix this problem? alpsoup at yahoo dot, Thanks TJ

    TJ, so many years since we used them, if I remember correctly it's the solenoid switch up under the nose of the machine. Good luck, Bob

    You can get the solenoid from W. W. Grainger, but it has a different slider. So you need some rivets to put the slider from the old solenoid in a new one.

    Tip # 473.
