The TruCut ½ HP Bowling Ball Spinner and Surfacing System is the most complete way to maintain and alter the performance of your equipment.

The Bowling Ball Spinner may be the most important accessory to have in order to maintain or alter your bowling balls performance.  Sanding or polishing a bowling ball is the number one way to change a bowler's ball reaction.  Creating the Difference has been working on developing a bowling ball spinner for the last 3 years.  We looked at some different concepts and prototypes that were good. But, there was one major hurdle that became difficult to overcome, that was the cost. The cost to develop and build something that already exists and wasn't going to appreciably get better didn't make a lot of sense. The hard fact is bowling ball spinners contain expensive parts and most of that cost is in the tooling. They are also heavy, which makes them less than ideal to ship. So we decided to work with Innovative Bowling and use their ½ horse power ball spinner as the base to start with. We slightly modified it for added versatility, and added some accessories and made it a complete package.

The Ball Cup Addition 

Through using the ball spinner we noticed that there was not a good spot to set a ball on. This is useful for setting up to use the spinner or resting it on while you are changing pads.  This issue is the case with most every other personal ball spinner available.  So we added a ball cup on top of the motor.  This is not groundbreaking by any means.  However it is more of a small refinement that improves the product. 



The TruCut ½ HP Ball Spinner features a single speed motor that rotates the ball 475 RPM's in a clockwise direction.  It also has a low vibration aluminum and nylon bowl components to hold the ball during rotation.  It has an in-line on and off switch that is easy to use. This product comes with a 5 year limited warranty on parts and the motor.


TruCut Conditioner 

This is an absolute must have accessory.  It doubles the life of the TruCut sanding pads and provides more consistent cutting.

By properly using TruCut conditioner with this system. You can reduce the need to use an external tub to catch the splatter left behind from using water with a ball spinner. Click here to watch a video on how to sand a ball without all the debris flying everywhere.

The TruCut Surfacing System can be used for light surfacing touch ups on bowling balls. All the way up to pro shop quality full resurfacing jobs when needed. It works great on any coverstock material used in bowling, and you can polish any bowling ball including the extremely hard to polish Purple Hammer.

How to properly sand a bowling ball with the TruCut Bowling Ball Spinner

  1. Place bowling ball onto the ball spinner with the holes up.
  2. Wet the desired sanding pad with 20-25 sprays of TruCut Conditioner or until the entire pad is wet.
  3. Turn on the ball spinner.
  4. Apply the sanding pad to the bowling ball and complete one pass (one pass is from the top of the ball to the bottom of the ball then back to the top) on the ball WITH LIGHT PRESSURE. Too much pressure will cause the sanding pad to breakdown very quickly.
  5. Turn off the ball spinner.
  6. Rotate the ball to complete the desired amount of sides you sand on the bowling ball. Use TruCut Conditioner to keep the sanding pad wet throughout the entire process. 

NOTE: Sand each side of the ball equally to make sure the bowling ball stays round. 

When sanding your bowling ball, DO NOT USE TRUCUT SANDING PADS THE SAME WAY YOU WOULD USE A ABRALON OR SIAAIR PAD. TruCut Sanding Pads will cut faster and should be used half of the time as other sanding pads.  We recommend touching up your bowling ball every 3-6 games to keep the surface on your ball consistent.

The chart below shows what the various types of sanding pads are labeled vs what they actually cut the bowling ball at.
