    Towers a step closer inwards to fit badminton better.

    They look very close to the middle to me, for my own learning, i presume you get on ok with them like that. Do you do 50/50 crosses?

    Hi !

    Here is my DIY machine stand : instead of buying it for 120€ I decided to create my own. I bought for something like 15€ of metal and 5€ more for the bolts and adjustable pads. Now with some welding action...

    [​IMG]

    And some paint :

    [​IMG]

    Action !

    [​IMG]

    Next step : use Arduino components to convert from manual to electrical machine ;)

    Dude, do you string your rackets in the middle of a crystal meth lab or what's up with all that blurring?! :eek:

    Nice work on that DIY-stand. Well done! I seriously envy everybody who has such handyman talent and skills. :)

    I'm so excitedddd!
    Penta Premium 3600 is coming tomorrow! :D
    I bought the RKEP Ti-70 reel to practise with, so that should be with me next week.
    And I bought a couple of packs of BG80 and packs of 5 Gosen G-Tone 5 and LN no.1 from MBS so hopefully that doesn't take too long to get to me.
    Eeeeeee!!!

    A lot heavier and bigger than I expected, but the quality seems great!
    Can't wait to get the string now!

    One question, for the side supports, which holes should I use? I just used the ones which seem like they're equal distance apart.

    First of all you have to turn the side support bits 180 degrees for properly mounting a badminton racket. Second you have to take the main towers further apart so that it looks like this when a racket is mounted:

    As long as the side supports are touching the racket in these spots it doesn't matter which holes they are in.

    Have fun with your new machine!

    Yeah I realised they need to turn 180 after reading Charlie's post about it.
    And yeah, I just put them in as I was about to store the machine. Seems all good! Can't wait to get started now! :D

    Beautiful machine. :)

    From the first picture, it looks like you string in he vestry of a church!
    I could never string there because, although I say a few prayers when approaching shared holes, certain other language that spouts forth during a frustrating job might not be considered 'appropriate' in such a spot.o_O

    I hear you - I'll burst into flames if I go into a church.

    And I can swear a good fifty times without repeating any while stringing; a difficult shared hole will get ten or twelve out of me, for example.
