    1. does everyone in japan own a ES5Pro? i see so many Japanese video with ES5Pro's!
    2. seems that the sausage bun knot is rather popular there.
    3. they weave one ahead.

    He mentioned 10% (even though he went slightly above) when doing the crosses.

    I agree...seems everyone has an ES5 Pro...maybe in a year or two they'll all have Protech 8s...i'm sure there is a nice aftermarket for all these ES5Pros. First Dibs!!!

    That knot looks pretty nice, anyone have a link to a video of how to do it?
    Googled for "sausage bun knot" without any success.
    Doubt ill switch from kwuns "no tension loss"-knot but always fun to learn new things :)

    Heh - "starting clamp" is "starting clamp" in Japanese;).

    I wish I'd videoed the time I had a go of the ES5... not that many on Youtube.

    i have used the ES5Pro/Protech a few times. definitely a nice machine but i am not sure if it is nice enough for me to pay $7000 for it.

    I've used pretty much every machine there is, and found the ES5 to be my favourite (and this includes more expensive ones) - I'd buy one just for personal use if I had that kind of money:).

    Reminds me - I need a go of a PT8 at some point...

    seen that ES5 quite offen, especially at t'ments.
    wonder if one can hire one for a day.
    well, if you like sportcars you can hire a ferrari or lamborghini for a day.

    why not our poor stringers still on a drop weight or cranks get our hands on one?

    not saying it is not a nice machine. it is. but it is also a very expensive machine.

    just have to befriend some shop who has one and let you play with it. ;)

    Nice way to reduce tension loss at the knots - this method is very effective even without the use of the awl. The stringer was too careful and didn't use the piler to tighten each loop of the knot.

    There is one overlap of the cross string though.

    Yep - he avoided the most difficult crossover at 12-11, then messed up an easy one at the top:).
