What do we call the bowling alley machines that fix the pins after the ball rolls and hopefully strikes them out?

This question is too basic; it can be definitively and permanently answered by a single link to a standard internet reference source designed specifically to find that type of information.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

I could knock down all the pins if they didn't keep setting them back up again ... – Jay Nov 14 '11 at 17:45
We're really trying to avoid using this site for "single word requests" where a dictionary, thesaurus or reverse-dictionary lookup will suffice. Typing "machine that sets up the bowling pins" into a Google search brings up the answer in the first set of entries. See Against Single Word Requests – Robert Cartaino Nov 14 '11 at 18:53
