    The motor broke. I'm going to part it out. Does not come with clamps though. $20 shipped for the broken tentioner. $60 shipped for the everything else. $70 shipped for the lot.

    Let me know if someone wants it before it goes on ****.

    Has any1 have experience with S.Partner's Swing dropweight machine? I'm thinking about purchasing just the dropweight lever and attaching it onto this base. S.Partner said it would be would fit. How good is the Swing anyway?

    I asked SP about replacing the e.Stringer tensioner with the SP Swing Arm - he said it could be replaced without problem as they used the same base.

    The arm will cost $110USD.. not bad if you already own the other stuff.

    I have no experience with the Swing, myself but it looks pretty sturdy, so if I were in your position, I might think about just replacing the tensioner.

    I'm curious how many string jobs you got out of your e-stringer before it broke (quality/reliability of the SP)?

    Karel,

    I've strung just three rackets but at around 70+ lbs. each. Also, I bought the stringer used so I can't exactly comment on the reliability of the tensioner. All I can say is that it crapped out and in the middle of a string job. If I were you I'd stay away from this product. I bought an Ektelon H model on **** and I don't even worry about it crapping out.
