How much was a Serrano circa 1968, Jim?
I paid $200.00 for it and it was well used at that time. machine was probably made in the 20's. the old timer that sold it to me spent as day to teach me to string. I was then on my own, no videos, no internet , no USRSA,or sites like this one back then. People that want to learn to string have it easier now.
Back then I charged string price + $10.00 labor. Thats back when gasoline was approx. 28 cents/ gal. Seems like what some stringers charge now that they never heard of inflation over the last 40+ years.
