    Nice machine. Hopefully i'll be working on one of those soon. Fun machine to work with.

    I'll try and post some pics of my silent partner swing. I'm liking it so far, but i'll probably upgrade to a LF quantum when I've saved the funds.

    Its the same as last years Wilson machine.
    The flex light I added is nice, especially this time of year, as when I get home from work, it is dark out, and the light positioned over the table works out great.

    Jim - I think I'll be getting a light like that soon. I've been having some trouble seeing at night - the lighting in my stringing room isn't ideal. When I do, we'll pretty much have the same setup - except I don't have that much VS sitting around (In fact, I don't have any.) And while I have a window in the same spot as yours, I don't look out over a beautiful lake like I've seen in some of your other pics. Instead, I look across the street at my neighbor's house in good ole suburbia. :)

    Take care.

    Why would you give up an x-6FC for an x-2?

    Also, how are the Eagnas clamps? Have you guys found a happy medium yet?

    It call brotherly love. Anyway, I bought an upright stringer anyway and he sent me the x2. Growing up we had a Prince Neos are parents bought.

    The eagnas clamps are fine. I do see some drawback on the clamp but I had draw back on my x6fc also. You just have to make sure the swivel clamps are secured.

    If my parents did not live the machine outside in the elements, I would still be stringing on the Neos. It just show nothing last forever (except those serano machine) :). I do like it but it was just a preference for two point machine.

    So you haven't even got a rating yet you've got a stringing machine and like 4 pairs of trainers. God damm your lucky! I only started getting that after playing a few tournaments.

    Yes I do. The machine as shown in the pics I got at a garage sale for $25. The tensioning mechanism works great.

    I spent another $110 on new clamps and mounting parts from Gamma. Not bad in the end for an upright lock-out.

    I do like the constant pull of my Alpha Pioneer III, but I really like the relative speed of the Tennex/Gamma 4000.
