    ok dumb question please bear with me. Using a clutch if the weight is below I just turn and hold the clutch drum to get the weight horizontal and move the clamp while still holding the drum? I got my mains done now onto to crosses :)

    Dancraig, Could you please drop me a email at forma_in@hotmail.com please. Tried to email you but you have selected not to accept emails through the forum.

    You offered me great advice a few years back when I was buying my stringing machine and I would love to run something past you.

    Thanks John.

    No, just hold the tensioning mechanism and lift the weight. You'll hear the clicking... let it click 1-2 times then release the clutch/tensioning mechanism and then release the weight. Don't touch the clamps.

    I think he has the SP swing, so there is no clicking on that clutch.

    Oh... then do everything above except listen and count clicks... :oops:

    Hold the clutch, lift the arm about an inch or so above horizontal, release the clutch then slowly release the drop weight.
