    Doesn't look like there are job count instructions in there, but I only did a quick search.

    Diredesire,
    Thank you very much for looking into that.

    I'm actually in the process for securing a 3k machine. It's lightly used and in a very very good shape. I bet it does have a low mileage on it. Have you or others worked with this machine? Any feedback would be appreciated. Thx

    These Wilson machines are beautiful. The shop at my local courts has one and I want to break-in after hours and give it a try.

    What do these still run?

    I use some 14x10x6" boxes. Place a divider near the end to hold the reel you're using apart from the others so it spins freely. I have one for 16 and 17 gauge. The reels you're not using helps to keep the box from moving around.

    EDIT: Unless of course you want something fancy to go with that fancy stringer. LOL Nice!

    My own Volkl PB10 on a Stringway ML120 with fixed clamps, and using the Stringway cross tool. I really like this last addition, for dense patterns, certainly in combination with poly strings. Here I have Diadem Solstice Power 17 mains and Rex Proffessional Supreme Black Bite crosses.

    Yeah, I was going to say, 3 pieces of wood screwed together is pretty fancy, a lot fancier than chrome, self adjusting height and angle stand. :)

    I kind of agree if you mean the cross stringer tool, but I am curious what other unusual things you see?

    Never seen that puller tool....does that metal thing literally sit on top of the mains and then you just slide it up and down and up and down? That's unusual.

    Never seen racquet knob clamps like that either. Or clamping that far away from the grommets. Or full poly in a PB10 Mid!

    Not weird, not wrong, just unusual!

    Ha, ok. For a little more information about the cross stringing tool, you can also watch this video:
    What it does it creates room between each following main string, so you can easilly push your cross through, without the need for weaving. Like I said, I use it for racquets with dense patterns en usually poly.

    I agree with you about the poly in a PB 10, not usual, but I must admit, stringing at 19k, it plays great! Though I am still in the middle of selecting my favourite string setup for this racquet, I haven't decided yet.

    I have seen this tool for the first time about 3-4 years ago. great tool but, in my case, I weave faster than this. I tried it, works great. Just not for me - too used to weaving myself :)

    Basic setup, but it works.
