    Hello, I own a Gamma 5003 stringing machine and I bought a Gamma tension calibrator and have found the tensioning system of the machine to be 5 lbs too loose. I want to calibrate the machine but I don't know which knob/screw to turn. can someone help?

    I would love to help you but I have an electronic and don't know how to do cranks. Try reposting in the stringing machine section. You should get a considerably more amount of replys there.

    I used a spring calibrator, then I bought this:

    Though it says used, it looked brand new to me. for $20 including shipping. Brand New $25 plus shipping.

    I was off by 2 lbs, using the spring tension calibrator. Now I'm dead on. Even comes with a 3 foot tape measure.
