Also most 6-point machines use V-shaped or K-shaped or other shapes for the side supports. These side supports prevent only outward expansion/distortion of your frame. They cannot prevent inward distortion of the two top corners. You can actually verify this after a stringing job-the 4 side supports would not be as firm or evenly tight as before the stringing job.
    Yes, it is true. Maybe I can custom made some of those support to handle both external/internal inward distortion. I'll do some research on this.

    The laserfibre support system can be expanded to include four external supports. The head and throat plates must be CNC machined though.

    Yes, it can be done. The V shaped external supports can be custom-made to include an anti-inward movement device.

    I wonder will it be easier just use Eagnas's 6-point mounting system instead of altering the plates. The track for the two mounting posts on LaserFibre looks like it will fit Eagnas's mount posts. I have the measurement if you need the info.

    It's hard to take close-up photos of the tie off with two pins inserted in the loop.

    The two pins act like a pulley and bearing system. I didn't reduce the pull tension so I had to be very careful not to drop the weight too much. Too much tension could pop the string.

    As you tension the string, pull one pin out at a time until the knot becomes tight. Don't tension further or you will pop the string!!!

    Immediately proceed to tie a pro knot.

    A very small hand crank device will help tremendously for the tie-off process. The size of the hand crack device should be no bigger than a pair of pliers. Its operation should be very similar to the community-centre type badminton net crank device. The pull direction should be up upward perpendicular to the racquet frame.

    thanks for all the detailed photos. Too bad the pictures of the tie-off knots with what i think is a bent up safety pin didn't turn out. A little confused but will ask you questions when the time comes... =)

    Yeah, bent-up safety pins work very well. Actually, I use three pins. Hopefully, I will be able to draw a diagram of the loop and where the pins go.

    That's what happens when I dropped the weight too much.

    Luckily, the knot was finished!

    Default Reason

    -what is that flying clamp doing outside the frame?

    That's to hold the main string in place for an even tension. Most fixed clamps are very fat in width. Having two fixed clamps holding onto the centre two main strings is simply not possible. The Stringway fixed clamps can be put side by side, without space in between, at four main string of space.

    -what are you doign with that floss?

    The floss is to get the cross string into the shared grommets.

    -what is with that guys grip?

    That's black adhesive tape .

    No, I don't weave that row with the floss. I only insert the floss into the two difficult shared grommets at the same time to save time.
