    I was wondering if any of you guys have owned or still own a gamma x-2 stringer. I am thinking about getting one, but I will only get it if it will last at least five years. So how many of you have had one that lasted less than five years or are they really durable?

    Provided you don't abuse the crap out of them and maintain them properly, almost all stringing machines should hold up to the test of time. I've seen people who use Klippermates for a long time.

    it's simple machinery. if it's built well you can give it to your grandkids someday.

    edit: yes IT will last.

    I agree, it is built to last.

    Without defects, it should be fine. Remember, "drop weight," not push down. Wipe any manufacturing lubricants and so forth off any string that may have it, as not to get it on the gripping surfaces. Keep your hands clean for same reason while weaving. Learn to properly adjust the clamps for easy opening and closing. Keep the machine clean and stored properly.
