    Hi there,
    Looking to replace the rotational gripper on my SP Estringer DG. So far, only compatible gripper I have found is called "Pro's Pro TX Tensioning Mechanism Wheel" on the big site. But of course, very expensive shipping from the UK. Any advice on where I might find a suitable alternative?

    Would the SP Aria one work? How might I find one. Your help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks for your quick reply Irvin. My machine is actually a Silent Partner machine, do you happen to know any other brands that might be compatible?

    I have sent Eagnas an email, but won't expect to hear back till the new week. I did look at their website, but didn't find the part I was looking for.

    The Aria gripper will work. Also, the T-o-p-s-e-r-v-e machines in Australia used the same OEM as SP and had identical models at one time. They may be a source of spares.

    I would give Steve at SP a call, as he is always very helpful. SP is still in business, selling ball machines. They got out of the stringing machine business due to their OEM's unreliability in supplying product.
