    Dear BCBF Members,

    Many beginner asked about stringing instruction on how to use staring pin method. Since I am helping Klipper USA on writing a instruction for their Badminton machine (M140) I would like to share it with you all. Any helpful advice are welcome.

    Thing to watch out. For most of the machine using wing nuts to secure the post, there might be some give on the top. So please push the top of the post in and tighten the wing nuts to ensure the post is secured and will not move during stringing.

    After measured and cut the main string, insert the string through top 2 grommets on (A1). Then insert string through the first grommet near the throat (B1). Pull both end tight and even.
    Note: I use Yonex naming term
    A1=1st grommet from the top. A2=2nd grommet from the top. etc
    B1=1st grommet from the throat. B2=2nd grommet from the throat. etc

    Clamp the strings from the top.
    Note: The clamp in use here is a generic HiQua clamp without paint.

    Mount string to the tensioning head. You might want to push the string down to secure the string on the tensioning head and get close to the right position on the fist pull. Adjust string on the tension head after first pull to get the right tension pull

    After string is tension to the right tension, pull the starting pin string straight. Clamp the tensioned string and the starting pin.

    the first string is tensioned with 2 clamps.
    Note: I am using 2 clamps in this instruction because Klipper USA is including 2 fly clamps with their machine. I usually use 3 clamps and Sir DinkALot uses 4 Clamps in his instruction video.

    Release the clamp and remove the starting pin. Move clamp over to the 2 center string. Now you have started first 3 strings.

    Repeat the process and switch from side to side until main 9.

    Follow the string chart of your racquet for the last 2 main strings.

    Tension the main 10 from B10.
    Note: You can not tension Main 10 if you tension Main 11 and clamp main 9 and man 11. If you use swivel clamp, it is OK to clamp main 11.

    Tide off the main. You can use double hitch knot to tide off the main. Depend on the racquet and string pattern, the main tide off can be on B7 to B9.
