    Does anyone know of a suitable floor stand for the premium stringer 3600 that fits?

    I've asked Watdon about their Pro's Pro Universal floor stand however I've been told by them that they haven't actually tested it to see if it fits, and that their drilled holes may not align with the premium stringer.

    Any suggestions would be grateful.

    I've taken the plunge and ordered the pro's pro floor stand as they said it is universal, should arrive either today or tomorrow.
    I was thinking about ordering it from tennisman but with the VAT and import charges on top it'll be too much.

    I have the 3600 with WISE.

    I just put my machine on one of those fold-out tables. The plastic table cost $10 so it made me feel better for spending so much on this sport -_-

    Just received it and built it... the holes clearly don't align with the stringer, however the weight of the machine prevents movement of itself so I guess it will do.

    Not too bad I guess

    Great set up! The black-on-black with white lettering matches really well together =) Happy stringing! Should post your times when you get the chance.

    Hi Vienly
    ive got the premium 3600 set up as well and have been thinking of buying the stand you've bought.
    is it steady?
    is the height of the stand adjustable? If so, what is the maximum height?

    are you happy with it?

    You could drill your own holes in that stand so it fits your machine. Should be a pretty clean job to do.

    To be honest this isn't designed for anything else besides the Pro's pro machines, my machine was sitting on top of this and the metal base started to warp due to the weight of the machine.

    I had to ask my friend to cut me a piece of black strengthened glass (exact width and length) to place ontop of the metal base to stop it bending.

    If I had the choice I would send it back and get a refund, and buy the original stand for it however what I have now will do.

    Pro's Pro floor stand

    Don't say vienly!!!! Doh! I have just ordered the same stand, but having said that I have a Pro's Pro TX700 so hopefully should be ok. Just ordered some 50mm castors (lockable) too and wanting to fit them to the stand so that I can move it around! Will see how it goes.

    Just for an update, the stand is fine, holds the stringing machine great and with the castors fit it is just what we want!

    Its OK having "a roll of string holder too", its filling it with string that's the hard part! We have got 3 rolls on ours and that's the best part of £190-!!!! 2x rolls of BG65 ti and 1x roll of BG80. What machine do you have henrychenn?
