View Full Version : How to Calibrate a Machine

08-24-2009, 12:13 PM
Hello, I own a Gamma 5003 stringing machine and I bought a Gamma tension calibrator and have found the tensioning system of the machine to be 5 lbs too loose. I want to calibrate the machine but I don't know which knob/screw to turn. can someone help?

Why adjust it? Why not just set the tension 5 pounds higher?

I would love to help you but I have an electronic and don't know how to do cranks. Try reposting in the stringing machine section. You should get a considerably more amount of replys there.

I used a spring calibrator, then I bought this:

Though it says used, it looked brand new to me. for $20 including shipping. Brand New $25 plus shipping.

I was off by 2 lbs, using the spring tension calibrator. Now I'm dead on. Even comes with a 3 foot tape measure.
