    Hi Mark,

    I have a thought about that. But at the moment I am quite satisfied with this machine. The only thing I hate about this machine is "Side Support". The "side support" always cause "marking" on the racket :( and I don't how to fix the problem. The only way I can think of it is to put piece of rubber to protect the racket. And 1 more thing. is there possible to put "load spreader" on this machine ?

    The Michal supports would be a good - and cheap - investment; the ones you have at the moment are very narrow and very hard, so it's not surprising that they are marking your rackets.

    It is not possible to use a load spreader with that "hold-down" support, but you don't need one - the white "crescents" are already doing the job!

    (I must say, I do like that turntable:))

    Thank you very much for the suggestions, I am considering it :D.

    I bought this machine about a year ago, it costs me 1000 Singapore Dollar still haven't break even :( until now. I am doing this for my hobbies and helping stringing my badminton groups and my badminton student stringing their rackets.

    I am staying in Singapore and I don't know how can I buy the "WISE" tension head beside buying it from online. Is there any "WISE" distributor available in South East Asia ?

    It is not possible to put load spreader. As Mark said the white "crescents" are already doing the job!. I won't buy Toyo clamps because it is really expensive. My bucket list "Wise 2086 Head and Michal Chudek Side Supports".

    actually where can we buy a pair of toyo clamps?
    for the side support i would like to add a point that you may first try to use some grip to cover the sharp points before considering any upgrade
    the prime upgrade for this machine is the wise head
