tbuggle, I just want to make sure of what you mean since I have read that my Hawk 80's base clamps will more than likely be moving, too. Since the base clamps for both of our machines have a skinny isosceles triangle-like shape, do you mean we need to lock the base clamps so that the vertex angle and the base (of our skinny isosceles triangle-like base clamps) are lined up in the same direction (as much as possible) as which the string is being pulled in order to prevent movement (as much as possible)?
