Looks like with the recent reorganization, it's going to start making a lot more sense to consolidate a few of the stickies into one thread. Please reply with other suggestions that you feel should be included. These are woefully out of date at this point!

Done, keep the suggestions coming, people. I'll eventually get around to completely revamping these stickies, but it's very low on my to do list :)

If no one objects, I'd like to add Irwin's videos to the sticky:

"I just created a couple of videos for starting your mains. Here is one if you have fixed clamps:

And here is another with flying or floating clamps:

Ditto.
Thank you all of you, I do not know whether you realize it, but your efforts are truly appreciated!!!

When you are done with this project, may I suggest you another?
There is so much fighting over methods of teaching tennis, but I think debate is positive. Why not consolidating interesting threads, saving useful info and "cleaning"the nonsense?

XOXOXO

I'm up for requests, I think debate is healthy, as well. Unfortunately, backers of various methods tend to fight and get personal. If you have ideas as to what you'd like to see in a sticky, feel free to e-mail me!

Hi Irvin,

I got a question on one of the ways to start the main with fixed clamp. You pulled both mains and then clamped down one of the mains with a fixed clamp, then you loose both tensions and hand pulled one of the main string so that the fixed clamp stay at level with the main string before pulling with the machine. My question is , can you not just clamp one of the 2 main strings and then pull it with you hand to get the fixed clamp at level and then pull 60lbs with the machine?

Hey, you should start a new thread in the subforum with specific questions to members, this post is reserved for sticky topics :)

Can anyone advise whether the main string tension should be set higher than the cross or the other way round during stringing. Should the main string tension increase once the cross string is strung across the main. I am using the Eagnas flex 940 stringing machine and I've notice when I set the tension at 40lbs for the main string and 37lbs on the cross. Final tension I've measured on the main is 55lbs. Is there anything wrong? I hope someone can assist.

What did you use to measure final tension?

IMO those items that measure tension are most helpful with measuring tension loss and not as good as giving final tension off the stringer.

Is there a manual for lubricating a drop-weight machine
