tanepak can you explain because my english is not so good what do you mean!!

Second point is that if more and more players buy their own machines and string their own racquets, instead of having the sportstores string for them, the stores will have less and less business. If the stores stringing business get less and less they will lose money, which will then make them want to get back some lost business. To get back lost business, they will have to be competitive, with stringers like you, and that means cutting prices.
I hope I have not confused you and that this explanation is not more confusing than the earlier shorter one.

Hmmm well you can only make money from stringing if you are a GREAT stringer. Good is not enough nowadays. Some stringers just string with some basic knowledge. But there is alot to learn about in stringing. I'm sure Taneepak agree with me on this.

well i'm not replacing all the grommets, just the really bad ones.
I'm still not the fastest i've ever seen..but i'm satisfied. IMO anything within the hour is good.
when i started it took me 2 hours. stringing every main, and every cross. tripple checkign the weave-work, and weaving slow.

my answer is C...always go to a shop. I have no idea how to string rackets nor am interested in learning the fine art of stringing.

I string in my living room. Though I store the machine on a bookshelf in my study. The most dangerous part is moving the machine to the living room. If I ever drop that ton of metal on my feet, I can forget about playing badminton ever again.
I had the machine for 6 months, it has paid for all my 200m reels of strings and it won't be long before the machine will pay for itself too. The best part is the most valuable: the machine gave me the ability to find my optimum string and tension for free, and transformed me from a beginner to a competent club league player. Those I play with benefit too, as I observe their play and gradually tune their string/tension whenever it is time for them to restring.
