Yes or no? (and ID machine please)
I've been on the lookout since my last deal for a stringingmachine fell through and now i've found this for €75.
The crank and the clamps have been replaced last year and it comes with all the usual tools and a couple of reels.
I've tried to reach the seller for a couple of questions, but i can't reach him, so here's my question for you:

What machine is it and is it worth it?

It look like an Taiwanese machine a la Eagnas or Pro's Pro. If it works properly, 75 euro is not a bad deal, especially when you get some reels with it. However, be careful with Pro's Pro cranks, I read some bad stories about them. You should be lucky to get one which is technically sound.

Finally managed to reach the seller. He didn't know the brand, but he said he bought it at tennis-planet (without the hyphen), which makes me think it's probably a Tyger. I'll be sure to check it out before buying it.

I think it's a good deal if there's no problem with the machine.

Looks very similar to this one by Eagnas except different color:

6 pt mounting with individual adjusting side supports
disk brake
spring assisted bases

I picked the machine up yesterday, and it's a Tyger T-73.

The guy thought it was getting on a bit and that the clamps had some problems. After a bit of tinkering and a bit of lube, it works as new.
Just bought a cheapo racquet (1 buck) to start my adventure in stringing.

Looks like you scored a good deal. Congratulations!

Good find! Have fun!

Yeah good deal, you will save a lot of money by stringing yourself! And you can more easily experiment with different strings and tensions. Good luck!
