Middle of a string job ( I have a drop weight machine) and the part of the tensioner ( WHere the adjustment rod comes out and also holds the gripper) just gave way. Now its Free spinning instead of only going one direction. Can't pull tension! Any ideas???

Not sure if this is your problem but have a Alpha drop weight that has a clutch spring that when the tab breaks, the drum will spin around. Either replace the spring or in a pinch, bend a new tab but bending a new tab won't last as long as replacing with a new spring, which usually cost about $10 when purchased from Alpha.

10 Isbum, your correct. I called the owner and he happened to be in the office. Yes, its the spring. I took it apart and tried to do as you said but the spring came off the drum so Now I have to somehow get it to them for repair. Its under warranty. Thanks!
