    Yeah, it didn't look like something that Ektelon would sell :/ Or just generally any company would sell to the public putting aside shops.

    If you have a copy of the Model H manual it's in the back pages. The only bad thing is the feet of the cabinet dont' level.

    Oh. I guess it's still pretty nifty thing to have when stringing.

    It probably cost more for the cabinet, so not may were sold.

    Not too much to the point where you can't string but if you look in the video they did fine.

    The cabinet is the same footprint of the stand.

    the feet/legs can be stepped around/over.
    a cabinet cannot. i had my old court and slope (kmate) on a homemade
    rolling cabinet and it was a wee bit more in the way, but no biggie.

    Here are some updated pics. I have moved the head more on-center, so the angle (friction) is decreased.

    I tried stringing on it, it was not too bad. The feet don't level, they are fixed.

    It does look nice. Maybe he can modify it to accept adjustable feet or casters.

    I got them from Gamma, but it was during some warranty help.
    I believe TW has them available as well. There are other, cheaper
    options to be sure, but i didn't feel like searching around.

    i believe they were in the 85 dollar (US) range.

    edit: i don't see them on the TW site, but a phone call to either TW or Gamma will yield a set of wheels, I'm sure.
    these wheels are nice. all locking, nice rubber treads. and a warranty. already having the machine it was a no-brainer.

    IF YOU DON'T HAVE A GAMMA, PERHAPS CHECK ALL THIS INFO AT THE DOOR TO THE *******.

    found my rcpt. wheels/castors were 92.95 shipped from Gamma.

    Cheers!!

    @tbuggle : Beautiful. The scenery is perfect. I give you props on the amazing picture! Has anything fallen through the floor gaps? haha. Do you occasionally string at that location or do you move it back indoors?

    @tbuggle: are those Gamma clamps that came with your machine? They look like Prince clamps.

    Well; heres my view from the window just next to my machine. I could move the machine out on the deck like you do, but thats not too practical, especially in the winter!

    Very nice. I still see leaves on the trees. You must be fairly far south if you live in the USA.

    My stringing playground corner thingy...
    Eagnas combo 6010, a fine stringer If I say so myself, only had one minor problem with it.
    I dont spend alot of money on strings, mostly gosen polylon etc. but I go through a lot of it, this stringer its self has probably gotten close to paying for its self. at 22 dollars a string job at my local pro shop, it was a big investment, but it has only begun to pay off! Oh, and a space heater to keep my piggies warm in the winter. Its in a very cool basement.[​IMG]

    Thanks! Im actually trying to get rid of the prestiges, I used those for three years in high school, before that it was a microgel mp prestige. Ive moved to the Extreme, It was time for a change I believe. Getting more power and spin from those extremes

    MPs, they served me well though, I only lost one regular season match, which isnt anything to brag about as our district was awful, but when we got to regionals etc. Me being a no.3 most of my high school career, you began to run into some serious competition.

    yea. Very solid racket, I took a 7 month hiatus from tennis after my last match in high school, I just recently started playing again. I lost my mastery of them, very good rackets when you get to know them, and the ins and outs. Im slowly working my way back up to being able to use them, but I dont think I will use them again. Im really liking the extremes. Well see how the extremes do after the honeymoon phase is over.

    Yes, he was very helpful. Machine was in good shape and came with lots of extras including the Babolat red starting clamp. If anyone out there is in need of the owners manual or the calibration instructions, for the 3000, I have both in file format.

    Thanks! It is perfect to hold all of my extra tools, reels, sets and whatever else I can fit in there. Tons of storage room.

    No problem. I got it from Sears if you are looking at getting a stand or tool chest like that. Less than $100
