    I have a Stingway ML 90 and would like to know if I could attached a Wise 2086 to this machine, if it can be done, how difficult is it to do, I ask this because, I am not a very Handy-man type of person.
    Hope to hear from all BC stringers soon.

    As far as I know, the Wise 2086 can only be attached to Crank system machines and your machine is a drop weight machine, so you can't.

    the key is can you take off the drop-weight part easily? if so, then you are golden. the worse that you will have to do is to drill a couple of holes to mount the WISE drop weight adapter. you might not get 360 depending on how high the turntable sits on top of the base.

    I would keep the Stringway drop-weight mechanism and transplant it to a modern six-point machine.

    I would like to thank Kwan, Yan.v, Alex82 and Phili for your input regarding the Wise 2086, I have decided to contact them and go from there.
    Thanks once again guys.

    Certainly not Eagnas turntables. Maybe a W&D 3600?
