    Stuck Gamma Clamp / Clamp Base - Need Advice

    Thanks esgee48 After I got them 1/4, I did try and rotate them, no luck. I did figure that now I had access to the 1/4 inch of string clamp stem then the penetrating oil may work better. So I sprayed them liberally and put them away for a couple of days. Today I talked to John from Gamma...

    Stuck Gamma Clamp / Clamp Base - Need Advice

    Hi Karma Tennis, Thanks for the suggestions. I am a bit reluctant to use a blow torch because of the fiberglass string clamp head and a general approach of taking it slow and doing no harm. I have been told (and also saw a post) that it required the use of a 12 ton hydraulic press to separate...

    Stuck Gamma Clamp / Clamp Base - Need Advice

    Hi jim e, Thanks for the response. Yes that is what I suspected. Thanks for confirming. I think the machine was well looked after until it was given to the person I bought it off. It looks like it sat in his backyard for a while, fortunately it doesn't rain that much in the Bay Area. Not ideal...

    Stuck Gamma Clamp / Clamp Base - Need Advice

    This week I picked up a Gamma Progression FC ES Electric. The good news is it has the upgraded quick action base clamps. The bad news is both string clamp / base clamp sets are seized/stuck together. There was surface rust on the base clamp hosels so I assume they are rusted together. I...

    Klippermate in case as carry-on luggage?

    Yes I took one to Australia (to restring my Australian racquets when I visit) I put a belt around it for security. I added a little bubble wrap inside the case and it was fine traveling as cargo.

    Wilson Baiardo Pulling Speed Recommendation

    The Country Club that I teach at now has a Baiardo that I can use any time. I have gone through virtually all the Baiardo threads, videos and looked at the Wilson documentation for this answer I was curious about the recommendation for setting the pulling speed. Wilson seems to recommend 100%...

    Stringing a Blackburne double sided racket

    I don’t have an ERT but I used RacquetTune. Using the Prince floating clamps that came with my Neos 1000 I couldn’t get the two stringbeds to measure the same which is why I increased the tension for top plane (floating clamps). They measured the same after that but as was suggested previously I...

    Stringing a Blackburne double sided racket

    Sorry I didn't reply before. I didn't charge as I did it for a friend and I was curious. Its probably 3 times the labor......as weaving the top plane crosses is a pain

    Stringing a Blackburne double sided racket

    You are most likely correct. Just trying to do the best I could to have them approximately the same. No doubt that what I am doing is not particularly empirical, but I feel better having made the attempt.

    Stringing a Blackburne double sided racket

    Having just done one of the these with poly (uhh) I have a couple of tips. First I strung it with synthetic gut to make sure I knew how to do it before using customers poly strings. Synthetic gut was much easier. I followed the USRSA advice and strung the bottom plane with fixed clamps and top...

    tension calibrator alternatives

    Understood. I think I have quite a way to go before LO vs CP is my limiting factor for consistent string jobs. Looking forward to getting there some day :)
