    As gstring put it so nicely, I've reposted the link. Hope everyone can see it now. If not the please search for 'Molstring Portable Stringing Machine' on www.****.co.uk

    that's pretty neat and the first link does work. But once you tension it, how in the world are you suppose to tie it off?

    i agree with gstring21, for that kind of price i rather buy myself a spare racket instead of trying to repair it.

    I guessing that you use the included brace like the supports on a normal machine, tension each string and clamp off as normal when using flying clamps. Tieing off should be the same as normal.

    I think this could work as an emergency only and in the hands of an experienced, competent stringer but they're the ones which probably wouldn't touch it! It the hands of an inexperienced stringer it could be asking for trouble.

    I'd like to have a go with one, but I'm not wasting my money on it. Maybe I'll contact the seller/company over here and see if they can send me a demo.

    There's no frame mount, so this machine would only be suitable for emergency or back up use(they say as much in their item on e-bay). Regular use of this machine on any racquet with a flexible hoop wouldn't be food for it and it mightly very well come out distorted.

    it would probably take forever to string a racquet
