What model? Eagnas makes two kinds, Screw type or Swtich action.

Depending on the type of clamp base you have, check out this thread:

I did the mods from that thread, and they really helped.

They can be adjusted (unless stripped or somesuch). Just depends on which clamp bases, as to how you do it.

I'm assuming he's got a switch lever action base clamp. That seems to be a common problem with Eagnas more than the ConeLock (Eagnas name). In either case, the OP has not responded so, I'm calling this a dead thread until he replies.

eagnas
 
i believe that they are the spring assisted swivel clamp base:

You're never going to know if you don't even give it a chance. 310 523 4641 is their number if you're interested and they're on pacific time.

austintennis2005 10-20-2013 01:53 PM

Let us know what happens.

Also, look at this thread about someone who replaced his Eagnas bases with Gamma bases, if you want to spend $$ on an Eagnas machine:

looks like those gamma clamp bases around $247 ...pretty ridiculous ...

austintennis2005 10-21-2013 10:02 AM

i did call eagnas and yes they were extremely hard to understand with heavy accent ...but he did say i could try to special order the inner parts/screws that may be able to fix the clamp base for pretty cheap so i guess i will try that..

Adles 10-21-2013 10:21 AM

Here they are for $150 http://www.atssports.com/tennis.cfm?product=2010
Also there are Pro's Pro versions for $120.

But even at that is an awful lot if you can get yours fixed from Eagnas and you will be sure that they work on your machine without a problem.
