Can I use NEOS 1000 clamps on my Toalson stringer (Gamma 4000)

    The Toalson appears to be an exact replica of the NEOS 1000. I wondered if I could replace its glide clamps with those made for the NEOS 1000. Those seem nicer. If so, does anyone know where I can find a pair.
    Thanks for your time.

    Im positive that glide bar clamps are universal to every stringing machine using glide bars.

    If ALL glide bars are the same why not anyone?

    EDIT: Dot calm? I think your spell checker is at it again.

    OP said he wanted Prince glidebars, pretty simple.

    My bad I thought he wanted to know if Prince glide bars would work on a Toalson machine.

    They may work, but he may have to replace the clamps and bars. They are not all the same.

    I have no idea if they'll fit, but that's what he wants and Andyroo says they will.

    I have no clue, i hope to never use glide bars again although they work just fine and i don't string snowshoe rackets.

    Just make sure the height of the prince clamps are equal to or greater than your clamps. I'm sure you dont want clamps too short to reach the racquet.

    Apparently they won't fit

    Thanks a lot for the help.


    Here is what Jim at tennismachines.com just emailed me:

    ..., unfortunately the Toalson clamps were taller and they also were metric bore and the Prince clamps are standard U.S bore so they just will not fit.
    If you ever need anything done with the tension head on the Toalson we can still do that because all the tension heads are clones of the Ektelon. But because the Toalson was a sister of the Gamma glide bar machines there just are not any mounting or clamping parts left since Gamma stopped carrying the glide bar machine parts other than the clamps can be gotten through another company.

    Thanks and let me know if you have any other questions
