Can someone recommend a floor stand with tray for the Revo 4000? I just received my stringer today.
search revo 4000 (10 char, 3+ words), there are several nice options that folks have come up with, mostly tool carts from HD, Lowes, Harbor Freight, etc..
they seem to work well.
Can I purchase a regular stand with a tool tray that would work with the revo? I'm not looking for a tool chest.
Thanks for the info.
once you get your revo setup, would you mind posting up a video of your new video
If any one of you have used Eagnas PT-270 floor stand for the Alpha Revo 4000, can you please share your experience?
I would like to know the dimensions of the top plate of PT-270 to make sure the Revo's base can be accommodated. I believe the dimensions of the base of Revo are 25.5" x 15".
Appreciate your response.
hey hey the eagnas stand will not fit a revo 4000! revo dimensions are 25 inches long that stand only fits a 22
I actually wouldn't recommend the PT-270 Floor Stand for the Revo 4K due to instability issues. To secure your machine to the base you would most likely have to get the 4 corner bolt measurements from Victor/Maxline (good luck with that!) or drill new holes. You could use some C-clamps from Lowe's or Home Depot to fasten the machine to the stand, the only problem is you create new obstacles for your string to get caught.
I do like the utility cart option for the Alpha tabletops because of easy mobility and extra storage. However, it seems to me the machine could still shift a bit when stringing and they can be pricey. For my Alpha DC+ I picked up a commercial grade 3-shelf unit from HD for $20 that worked perfectly, and picked up some caster wheels as well. I was able to twist off the feet of the base of the machine and re-thread it from underneath through the wire bars. It held like a champ.
I think the best solution is to use the post. Forget the base tray from the 4000 since the stand has the tray. Something like the PT-220 instead.
how would you mount the machine on that lakers?
Take the base off the revo and remove the plate on the stand. Then mount the turntable post directly to the post of the stand.
I'd call Mark at Alpha, maybe he has a stand for the conversion from Table Top to Floor stand. Just because it's not on the website, does not mean it's not available.
Thanks for all the input. Very informative.
Yes, I did communicate with Mark. Alpha does not have a stand at this time.
Drilling holes or using C-clamps is OK for me. But, if PT-270 will have stability issues, I may not go that route. I am sure PT-220 will have same stability issues.
I am currently using a a/v stand that is too low. I might start reading past threads about utility carts to find a good match for me.
The Revo 4000 is the same as a Combo 810 (TT) and Combo 910 (Stand). My Flex 940 had the same stand except for the base clamps. Most of the weight is the turntable. Unlike true table machine where the center is slightly shifted towards the tension head. You would only have stability issues, if you were to use the original table base of the 4000.
Mine sits atop an old, 4-drawer dresser in the basement. PLENTY of storage for strings, tools, grips, tape, and supplies! The dresser is about 36 in high. I'm tall, so it's perfect.
have you done this??
