Daniel, This may be to late, but if you are still looking for a used stringer I have a Gamma 6400 that I used while I was learning. I used it for a few years and I upgraded to the Gamma 5800. It is in very good shape and it has all the parts and the manual and tools it came with. If you are interested or know someone that may want to get into stringing this is a great machine and easy to use. Let me know and I can send pictures. You can go online and take a look at it, and see if this may be a machine that make sense to you.
