    I have a wise 2086 connected on my machine. I tried putting these circular objects around my mounts to lift up the racquet to just perfectly get 360 on the wise. However When i pull the grip up by force i will get 360 just that it wont stay. Will I lose tension like this?

    My guess is that you put a Wise on an Eagnas. What ever you do to raise the racket up will weaken but it is possible to raid the turn table all thought I have never done it.

    Another problem you will have is the Wise pulls in a horixontal motion and the angle going into the gripper changes as tension is pulled. This causes problem damaging the string when it slips on the front of the gripper. Raising the racket up higher will increase the angle and the chance for damaging the strings unless you have a Diablo on the Wise.

    I own an Eagnas machine and most if not all of Eagnas machines turntable is mounted on top of the bearing. All I did was add some washers underneath the turntable on top of the bearing (My machine has 4 screws connecting the turntable to the bearing). It raised the mounts about 1/4 inch and I get 360 Rotation. Like you, I think 360 rotations is necessary, makes stringing easier and faster. I do not use a Diablo, as I hate wrapping string around anything. Just more places for the string to kink.

    Also you can move the Wise back a ways from the turntable, and it should clear the handle on your frame.

    Personally...I wouldn't worry about that. 99.9% of all "top tier" machines have 360° rot.
    You'll get the same horizontal angle, pulling some X's, as you do with a vertical angle having 360° rot.
    You'll get some that think an exact horizontal pull critical.....I don't.
    The most important thing you can do to produce a consistent string jobs is.... be consistent with your technique.

    If I could get photobucket to load, I'd post some pix of a Comet11/Wise I used to own. I put a small car wheel barring under the table. Worked great.
