    The MS140 has a key hole in the bottom so that the machine can be clamped to a table with such a bolt din 603 M10

    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...

    @struggle I assume that you understand that expensive CNC machines only must be used for complicated parts and not for a one direction flat surface. And we have too many of these:

    @PlayBrave 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.

    @PrinceYonex Sorry I missed your message. Of course you can order the machine without clamps. Just send me an email to stringway.fred@gmail.com 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. But...

    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.

    @Joe Garfield 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. You...

    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...

    @kkm Maybe we already have that machine “in house”? The MS140 is a downgrade of the foot operated MS200 that we developed in 1992. This machine is used a lot in shops to string many racquets a day has all the options that we supply and can string badminton and tennis. The 5 step cam...

    Wow this machine is old good to see that you are happy with it. This is easy to fix. The ball bearings are glued into the housing with 2 component epoxy glue. Any kind will do. Nowadays we glue them in from the inside so that the flange prevents the bearing from moving out.

    @ flash 9 I understand your reasoning. But I think that there is a misunderstanding about the major task of the racquet support; It is meant to prevent the racquet from getting shorter and wider under the load of all the main strings. The racquet support is not needed to protect the racquet...

    Some times we get questions about how to string stretchy strings, therefore hereby some advises. The difference between stretchy strings and stiffer strings is in the remaining elongation. Therefore stretchy strings loose more tension. When a string needs a second pull, the remaining...

    @kkm exactly right but not completely: I said this case was 15 years old not the machine.

    IMO we just compare systems with our arguments and say nothing about other manufacturers. Maybe other suppliers should come in with their arguments more? Of course this case sounds great for an Stringway opponent. But it is at least 15 years old and was probably resolved immediately: When...

    This right with one remark: It is important to adjust the supports at the throatside as high as possible but just under the grommets for minimum pressure on the racquet. If you string racquets with a narrow, round or tapered bridge it is better to use the Babolat retainer.

    I wanted to stay out of this discussion because the opinion of users is asked for. But our reason to continue the inside direct racquet support is so different from the assumptions that I would like to explain: The major difference between us and other machine manufacturers is that we are...

    The red rings were used to support Prince Extender racquets which were too long for the earlier turntable / racquet support. The black bush plus bolt is the table stop on the frame. The red tube was a simplification of our Tension Advisor disc we called it a “Tension Ruler”. The ruler was put...

    Question can be: If only selling is our major object why do we keep doing it differently from all the others 23 years long? Or: Do all the others just go with the (Babolat) flow?

    Just for your understanding: Maybe it is good to have a look at message # 36 in this thread. https://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/index.php?threads/stringway-%E2%80%93-information-%E2%80%93-questions-%E2%80%93-answers.673819/ So that you understand at least the difference between direct and...

    Imo it is difficult to match the speed of the auto DW. But, speed is a tricky item in stringing because the string decides about the speed with every system. A slow string needs 8 seconds to stretch and a fast one 3 seconds

    Every now and then we get questions about different SBS measurements in one string bed. It is important to understand that a stringbed has many sbs values. The frictions cause different tensions in the strings. When you start the crosses at the top the sbs at the top will be much higher than...

    Both machines can not be upgraded to the T92 system because that system needs a T-slot in the middle of the main beam. To fit the system that we use now the cross holes must be at 400 mm distance from each other Machines with those conditions can be upgraded easily by the user.
