    :D The string was discontinued in the early 80's, I was wondering if anyone had some old parts for this particular model. I contacted stringingmachines and they were laughing so I know it must be difficult. They mentioned the tensioner was still worth quite a bit but the I need clamps-glide bars etc. HELP!

    If TennisMachines in St. Louis can't help another avenue to persue is to keep your eye on e-Bay. I see the older Ektelons for sale on their regularly.

    You may be able to get another brand of clamps and glide bars, and retrofit them to the end pieces of your Ektelon.

    Wow

    This was one of the best machines built!

    Sure I know there is the B-star and all the others out .

    Used the Prince air machines!

    Well I found A De for $200 and it had not been used in 10 years!

    It came and I was not sure what I was getting!

    Pulled from the Box and strung one up at 60 lbs!

    Was on the $$$$$$

    This machine had not strung in 10 years!

    This machine is the tank of stringers!
