Hi everyone, new to the forum here, I have been stringing for years on a manual Gamma machine, but just over the weekend purchased a well used Babolat Star 3 machine. I watched the Babolat videos online and learned how to use it and calibrate it, strung a racket with it last night and all went well. A few questions for all you experts out there: 1. How tightly/loosely should I mount the racket in the stringer? the Babolat video said let it have some play, but I am not sure how much play is right. Can anyone describe the right amount of looseness/tightness? 2. The only thing missing from the machine are some of the little yellow pads. I need 1 for the 6/12 o'clock arms and 3 for the other arms. I called Jason at Babolat this morning and he said they have no parts left for this machine at all. Any idea if anyone else might stock these? if not, has anyone tried printing these on a 3D printer? I have a friend with a 3D printer, I was thinking of trying it. Are there are other people out there in need of these? Once I design them and get them right it would be easy to print a bunch and supply them to anyone in need. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
