    Post pro's pro shuttle express instruction manual

    Hi everybody,

    i have recently decided to enter the stringing market and purchased a pro's pro shuttle express...HOWEVER, the manual was missing so i phoned the seller and found out that the manual is no longer avaliable

    I have watched endless Youtube videos and read tonnes of posts but no luck, so i have joined badminton central, for the hope that there is someone out there in the badminton world that can help me set the machine up or send me a manual if it is no longer used..

    any comments will be appreciated

    thanks

    I'm assuming it came in the handy carry case and when you took it out it didn't look quite right?

    If so then you need to do the following:

    1. On the main shaft of the machine there is a toothed section that the crank works on. Take the end foot (the blue bit) off nearest this toothed part by removing the 2 allan studs.

    2. The racket clamp will be screwed to the main shaft, upside down and in the middle of the shaft. You need to remove this from the shaft by taking out the 2 allen studs.

    3. Turn the main shaft over so it stands properly on the one remaining foot. On the shaft, near to the end by the foot are two holes - this is where the clamp needs to be fitted to, and obviously the shaft is now the right way up, stood on its remianing foot and the clamp thus goes on top. secure it on with the same 2 allan studs.

    4. Slide the crank onto the end where you removed the foot - it is not completely obvious but there are some lugs on the crank that you will see help it to stay on the shaft with the crank teeth meshing with the toothed part of the shaft. It can only go on one way.

    5. Replace the end foot and secure.

    6. Push the crank handle onto the crank assembly.

    7. Screw the four plastic mounting fittings to the top of the mounting bracket/turntable.

    8. The remaining two bits are the poles that sit at the top and bottom of the inside of the racket head. take off the black knurled nut and push the block into the channel on the turntable and re-fit the nut on the end - do not tighten yet until you fit your racket. The second of these is the same but on the opposite side.

    9. To fit your racket place it over the top of the two upright pegs, they should sit between the centre two grommets - dead centre of the racket head. Tighten them up just so the racket doesn't slide to and fro - not over tight. Then clamp it down with the two silver clamps that should be the last two items of kit that you have, again, not too tight.

    10. Finally, wind in the side clamps to keep the racket sturdy in all 6 points, again, not over tight.

    You are ready to go!!

    If you're still struggling i could post some pics to explain further?

    thanks mat_patsy, your a life saver ..i have done everything you have told me to do and now the express is upright with the clamp and crank.

    just a couple of questions, mainly on the crank:

    1) the leaver that moves the cranks sometimes does not catch the teeth on the shaft and just goes round and round,(is this normal) if not do i need to move the crank down (if so how do i do it)

    2)how do i change the tension? eg 22lbs to 28lbs

    3) what does the knob on the end of the crank do, with the numbers 0,1 and 2?

    thanks

    1) the crank can be adjusted by loosening the 4 lugs (marked 1 2 3 & 4 in my pic) with the square plates that grip the rail, let the gear sit in at the right level and re tighten with the top plates just touching the top of the gear as in the second pic. The crank mount is one bit about the machine that i'm not totally happy with, since it is hard to get it set up just right without it wobbling too much.

    2) turn the knob at the end of the crank, marked 0, 1 & 2 until the corresponding scale reads the desired tension. The range 11-39 is in lbs, the other is in kg.

    3) see 2

    A couple of other things that i have found with mine ... when i got it the brake wasn't adjusted properly, so the crank would slide up and down when it should have been locked out, and the fly off lever would hit the plastic case with a loud thwack. You can adjust it if needed by removing the soft rubber on the lever and the 3 screws on the pastic crank cover. Then you must adjust the nut on the end of the bolt so that the lever doesn't spring all the way back, i actually put two nuts on the bolt to lock it in place as it kept slipping, be careful not to over tighten the bolt or you might shear it off.

    Also, on the top and bottom support posts, i found it a good idea to put a little piece of overgrap around the metal to prevent the frame getting dented (i found this out the hard way).

    If you need photos of the brake adjustment let me know and i'll take mine apart to show you.

    Try www.watdon.com

    They usually have some very cheap 200mtr rolls and 10mtr sets so you can practice till you're hearts content before you move onto 50 per roll.

    well i have just finished my first ever racket and it took me 7hrs with interval breaks..

    some mistakes and problems i incured was;

    1) incorrect stringing pattern
    2) the mains at all different tension and some crosses at different tension, this was because most of the time the automatic handbrake did not click in.
    3) the handle to move the crack was a big problem as the teeth would not move..

    are these common mistakes and how can i improve the next time i do a racket?

    my racket was strung at 26lbs with NBG95 yonex 4 knot method,up to down..

    2 sounds like you were pulling with too much string between the racket and the gripper, and getting to the end of the rail before it locked out. You need to make sure that the grippers are as close to the racket as possible before winding the crank, especially at higher tensions. There is a little knob on the slide rail that you pull and turn, which allows the gripper to get closer, but it will then be in the way of the turntable when it rotates. I use it for the last mains and cross where i'm usually running out of string.

    3 could be that the brake was still on, gotta make sure that you set the lock out lever back to the cocked position before doing anything else. it's a good habit to get into to always do things in a certain order, so pull (lock out) - clamp - unlock brake/cock -release string - return head to the racket - repeat. Either that or the teeth still aren't properly aligned, or that one of the square plates has twisted and is digging in to the gear rail.

    I wonder if you guys have any problems with the tension lever? Mine seems to have worn out after about 5 months.

    What kind of problems are you having? It might need to be readjusted.

    Hi, if you look at the pics above, my tension lever which is labelled # 4 is sort of worn out. I can't complete my pull in order to get the desired tension.

    The crank handle? There is a lock screw that holds in in place. I've never seen those things wear out.

    Can you take a picture of the worn out part? we can help you better when we can see how it look like. So no guessing.

    Hi, it has nothing to do with the lock screw. It's actually this:

    Here is a picture from a Gamma, there is a screw that locks the crank handle (on the right side).

    The Pro's Pro is simpler than that, it's like a ratchet/socket connection with a sprung ball bearing to lock it in. I like the screw idea though.
