I recently purchased a klippermate and completed my first string job. What a disaster. I used syn gut and it took me about 3 hours. I was feeling good admiring my work when I realized I missed two weaves on the last cross. What a bummer to say the least. I took a little break and gathered myself and started again. This time I took my time and used the set of hybrid strings that came with the stringer and finished in a little over an hour and it came out real nice. All I can say now is am hooked and look forward to stringing again. Thank you guys for all the valuable tips you give, they are priceless.
