    Hey guys, I just received a Klippermate stringer from my uncle's friend, who was a former player. He gave it to me, for free! There's only one catch though: I have to retrieve the missing parts, in order to get it working properly. Can anybody help me identify and obtain the parts?

    I'm also wondering if I HAVE to buy the missing parts from the Klippermate website, or if I can improvise and get the machine to work just as well?

    Bird's eye view of the stringer. I got the machine with one composite (badminton??) and one steel flying clamp... Is this okay? Should I go ahead and get another steel clamp? They appear to be heavy-duty and sweet-looking, IMO.

    Missing a knob from the dropweight-setting thingy. Any idea how to get another one?

    I've only got one of these frame mounting plates. Do I only need to get one more for the other post, or three of them to sandwich the frame when mounting a racquet?

    [​IMG]
    Picture of the post that's missing the frame plate. I'm also missing the vise knobs on both posts for holding the racquet down... Are there any alternatives, rather than the ones off the Klippermate site?

    Any help from Klippermate owners/stringers greatly appreciated! =D

    Wow, you're missing essential pieces. Hmm, I think that klipperusa would be the best place to go?

    All the missing parts can be found on www.KlipperUSA.com

    Vise Knob x2 = 7.50
    Frame Plate x3 = 12.00
    Stringing Clamp = 30.00

    As for the knob on the tensioning weight, I guess you would buy the badminton package and use that knob? I would call Klipper USA for that.

    Well I am saying the needed to make the machine workable. Not the stringing tools.

    You're in good shape. Just call the Kmate 800 number and get the parts. Have fun: it's a fun machine to string on. :)
