The T92 single action clamp system is self locking.
The principle is very simple and without any mechanical parts, therefore lasts “for ever”.
In some cases the clamps do slide over the guiding rails and the rails need a very simple service:
Polish the rails with a piece of Scotch Brite by...
Hello you all,
I saw a remark about the wheels on the MS140 in the thread “Stringway MS140 quick take”:
Hereby an explanation for the switch.
The wheels may not look so good as the balls but there functionality is much better during stringing.
The big rubber tires supply much more...
The damage by the awl a bit sneaky, i'm talking about conical awls.
The cross section with the holes are the cross sections of the racquet.
When the awl is pushed into the hole the force in cross direction on the hole is huge because of the small angle of the awl.
The graphite has to supply the...
@ Jim e
Sad thing is that I am rather “unhooked” from my hook, because there is very little to string for the club in our small village.
Due to the aging population in our village, there are far fewer tennis players.
Every now and then stringers ask us for an awl with their machine.
We explain then that we are against awls in modern thin wall racquets because the change of damaging the racquet is huge.
We advise to use a little hook in 2 cases:
- To insert a second string through a hole.
To pull the first...
Welcome to the SW users club.
This table may give a good impression between the different stiffness testers. It was made during the development of the Stringlab 2 by a member of the Dutch forum who had all systems.
Sorry I missed your message.
Of course you can order the machine without clamps. Just send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I send you a quote.
I just added the "without clamps option" to our website.
One more remark about using the clamps.
It is important to push the clamps around with your hand low, close to the guiding rails. The higher you push the more the locking system will try to lock and the more difficult the clamps move.
The old T92 system had more clearance than the new one.
I think an old machine should also run as smooth as new when some grease is added and some cleaning is done.
Degrease all shafts with a degreaser. Add Vaseline to the cross shafts, leave the long shafts dry.
I do not think you need new parts apart from a pin in the tensioner.
Concerning the drawing you are right.
But the drawing shows the outside shape of the upper jaw.
The string comes out more to the middle of the upper jaw against the 2 cams. In this position the radius of the upper jaw is in a different position in relation to the bottom jaw.
We sold the machine directly to Kristie so I assume that the seller can only know the story when it is really true.
We did not keep record of the numbers.
I assume that you can enjoy using it for many years.
If you want the manual just send me an email.
I do not think that there is any argument in our range to add another table top. The MS140 is developed to be a light machine which is easier to store and transport. The ML100 /120 sells very good and we already have a lot of products to produce.
Every design has its limitations, I think that...
