Where can I get these part for an Eagnas machine?

Call Victor at Eagnas and order them (if available). Don't elaborate, especially if it is a second hand (bought used) machine.
If you do, he likely won't sell them to you. He's a piece of work....
 
Why not take one off and go to Lowes or Home Depot? They're plastic rollers with a bolt thru the hole. Look in Cabinetry or other hardware. With the assembly in hand, it should be easy to find something.
I was thinking this way. But I don't have any of them in my hand.
This will be my first try out. Also making a trip to Harbors Freight Tools today.
Thanks for the suggestions.

any number of things would work. a man could easily fashion something even better out a couple small blocks of some hard wood.

no joke.

These parts are side supports and would need some sort of tightening.
I went to Harbor Freight Tools but there were none that I could try fitting.
Wooden piece would be first thing to try.

Send a picture to tennis machines, possibly they may be able to obtain a part for you.
Still, its worth a call to Eagnas to see if they can supply the part for you.

You can do everything via email with Eagnas. Send them an email with your machine picture, number of parts you want, and model of machine. They will get back to you with cost of part plus shipping. You then email back with credit card info along with name, address, etc. The process worked fine for the part I needed.

I sent an email with photo of the parts.
Thanks for the suggestion.
 
Got reply from Eagnas.


The price seems more than what I expected:

Plastic side-support with stem 4 x $9.00 = 36.00
Washer, each 4 x $0.50 = 2.00
Locking knob for plastic side-support 4 x $9.00 = 36.00
Shipping Charges = 8.00

I definitely need the Locking knobs. But those white pastics $9 each seems too much.

Any tips if I can use alternate to the plastics or make them myself?

Be glad they will send you the parts and be done with it. You are fortunate they have the parts available. You could have been looking at getting another machine, but lucky parts available.

Example take someone with a Babolat Star 5 ,or Babolat Sensor, if electronic board failed, no service parts available, and those people would be looking at getting a replacement machine., You are very fortunate to get parts.

Increase your service fee by a couple dollars and you will recoup in short term, then it will be extra profit.

When i spend SO much time trying to substitute something "else" for the real McCoy,
I often wish i'd have quit wasting so much of it and just bought the Original part to begin with.

Been there, done that.....and it's rarely worth it.

Good luck in your search to retrofit and save a few bucks. Time is money.

It's highly possible you will succeed and maybe even improve on the parts,
but it's not likely.....you could have been stringing already.

My .02 cents.

You will want to ask for vacuum tubing. Measure the diameter of the pieces you want to replace. Hopefully you can find hose that similar in size. If the inner diameter is too large, but the outer is okay, you could go to a pet store and get aquarium tubing to fill the space to make a snugger fit for the bolt.

Research and design is always more costly upfront. This is one of those case where it is possible might improve on the existing parts. It seems to me the hose material will be better than the plastic pieces as it will have more friction to hold the racquet in place, less likely to mar a racquet surface and the cost would be probably less than $1.00 to change out all four pieces. Hopefully @Folsom_Stringer_Musa will report back if it worked or not.

There is a problem with this. I bought this Electronic machine for $100
Now this tiny parts cost me $90
Hope you realize why I am not buying those parts yet.

Totally agree with you!

Sounds like you already have $500 in the machine (based on my hourly rate) and you still
don't have a machine that functions.

Just a thought. Now, if i wanted to retrofit (and i might just do that) it would have been easy enough
to do at any big box home improvement store, Ace hardware etc,

Just saying, i think you're overcooking this. Those aren't even much for "6 point" mounts.
You might be fine with just 2 point.

Use a "star knob" from Amzon or local hardware store to use as the locking knobs. 6mm? Get hollow ones in case your top screw needs extra room.
Use cap screws on top as the pins. 6mmx35mm? Hex head or mushroom head type.
Use polypropylene as the plastic. Find scrap or buy a cheap polypro cutting board. Cut and drill holes to fit.
