    If you're used to a crank machine, and switch to a Wise Tension Head, make sure you give yourself plenty of string. I was used to being able to crank the tension head right up near the frame. The Wise head is fixed, and it needs to be far enough away from the frame that it can rotate around. Add at least 6-9" of string to the short side or you may find yourself starting over a few times.
