    I scanned it for the inevitable day when I lose mine. Nobody asked but if you want it here it is. I even translated it in a few different languages. Not sure which. ;-)

    LOL! Looks like two versions, an English and International version.

    I told you I translated for our international friends! Call me a sport.

    There's some pages missing from the manual provided by Tennis Warehouse. I scanned every page, plus the front and back covers and the stringing tools sheet that came with it.

    Your copy is much more clear than the TW copy. Also the TW copy has two page 14s.

    You get an "Atta Boy" for you effort. :)

    Now I'm looking for a Model H manual or even a D or E. A friend of mine is having problems with the hold down. The posts are a bit worn and won't hold down tight enough. We've tried adjusting the allen screw but the dog or the lever too far worn.

    Can send you an H manual if you tell me where. As to your particular problem, I am sure you cleaned it first but that is always my first step. That hold down mechanism is the one area of the H that sometimes wears out--you can get the replacement parts from tennis machines (I think about 20 bucks or so plus shipping) and it only takes about 10 minutes to replace.

    DAK e-mailed me a manual. Thanks for the offer, though.

    I'm pretty sure it's the dog plate (13) or the lever (111). It does not give back any resistance when you turn down the lever, unlike the other one. I've already disassembled and cleaned it. I noticed the pin of the hold down has a little play in the dog. He also needs new pads and a retainer set.

    BTW which is the best retainer to used with a Babolat ADPGT and the like?

    I had this problem, cleaned with isopropyl alchohol + WD40 and has been much improved
