6 point mount blocks grommets

#57
I ran into this problem against yesterday.
The problem is that you need to recognize before you weave the next cross that it is going to happen.
I had to un-weave the "1 ahead" and then choose which side of the mount the string exited.
I also think I had to clamp down the string and not do the 1-ahead for that one.
Very confusing!

You don't need to unweave one ahead.
You just need to know what side of the mount you need to pull the string from, it's just that simple.
Not confusing at all.
? just what your issue is.
After all your experience and knowledge you should know just how your turntable with racquet rotates to know what side of mount to have string reach tension head from, and if it is on wrong side ( which it should not be if you just watch racquet rotation with tension head orientation) , you just place the string to other side by pushing the loop end through to other side and no need to unweave as you said.
Once you have strung a good number of racquets with side mounts , you wont even think about it at all, as you will have string exit proper side automatically.
Should not be confusing or an issue.

Anyone is has a blocked grommet on a 6 point machine is not mounting the frame properly.
I really doubt he has a blocked grommet from a mount, especially on the machine he has with V supports.
He is just confused and remember his comment.
I am an idiot who has no idea what he's doing ?
and as you know there was no need to unweave his one ahead because of side supports, that is unless he wrapped the string around the mount, which very well may be the issue since he said very confusing.
He needs to watch some of your videos @Irvin , without the sound, so he can critique your work!

Trust me even with V supports you can still have blocked grommets especially if you’re stringing a racket with CAP grommets. (EDIT: If the racket is not mounted properly.)

No, I think it is more complicated than that.
If you are doing the 1-ahead method, it gets messed up.

  1. Weave the cross. (Tension the other side of the weave, the previous cross)
  2. Exit the grommet.
  3. Mount is now there.
  4. You pass the string inside the V-mount and weave the next cross
  5. Now, it's time to tension the cross from step #1, near the mount.
  6. But, it's now too late, since you strung the 1-ahead, and the string is already on the wrong side of the mount
  7. Undo the last weave, undo the string from behind the mount, and now tension the string, THEN pass the string inside the V-mount and weave the next cross
Not sure if this makes sense.
I will take a video next time.

You need to anticipate that the string that exits the grommet near the mount needs to be tensioned immediately
before doing the next 1-ahead weave.

I’ve been stringing on a 6 point mount and weaving one ahead for over 8 years and have never encountered any of the issues you’re having. It’s really not that complicated.

If I understand this comment of yours, you needed to undo weave and undo string from behind mount, so you positioned string behind mount , which makes no sense at all, as you do not want to string racquet to machine mount.
Why did you do that? From sounds of things you did this routinely?
Why not try and place string inside V mount to begin with and you would not need to redo all you did?
Sounds a lot like your Parnell Knot issue where you tightened the first loop and then had to open with an awl to pass string through, and did that for a year, so this does not surprise me , unless you are putting us all on for your sad humor?
If this is for real then...
You know , if it is too confusing and too complicated for you , stringing is not for everyone. You may wish to get ahold of a good stringer and let him/ her string your racquets and you can move on to something else.

I managed to get this working without undoing a weave.
I made sure to note if the string was going to be fed under/inside the mount.
If it was, I tightened the loop on the other side of the mount.
THEN I pulled the rest of the loop thru. Hard to explain, but very easy to miss.

You are a genius obviously.
