    Smile Question about Eagnas EASY-3

    My friend and I bought the Easnas EASY-3 last week. We found out the diamond-coated, dual-action metal swivel clamp (fixed clamp) couldn't reach the badminton racquet when we mounted the badminton racquet to all six mounting points. we needed to lift up the fixed clamp to clamp the string. However, due to the weight of the clamp (metal), it's kinda heavy and will pull the string down. That way, it affects the tension. He wants to know is there any way to lift up the clamp, so that it can reach the switch the string appropriately?

    Could you please let me know how to do it or is it something wrong for the fixed clamp itself?

    Thanks in advance.

    didn't we have the same question a few week ago
    was the answer something to do with a spring to hold the clamp up?

    The swivel clamps can't be at the same height as the stringbed or you wouldn't be able to manoeuvre them (i.e., clamp off and clamp on an adjacent string). Is that what you mean?

    IMHO, the only time you have a bit of problem with the clamps pulling the strings down is when you do the first 2 centre mains. And there are ways to alleviate that (e.g., use a starting clamp, removable washers to temporarily hold up the clamps, etc.).

    Best to contact Eagnas and have them answer your question.

    I'm using the flying clamp when set up the first 2 centra mains. Is it okay?

    Yes, this is what I do. Just make sure to double back and double tension the clamped 2 central main strings, just to make sure there's no slack.

    Using only flying clamps to start stringing from the middle mains is not the best way on the Easy-3. You have one swivel clamp, which can be used as a starting clamp. This machine is best with another 3 flying clamps to go with it's swivel clamp. I am sure you can figure out on how to use the swivel clamp as a starting clamp without the clamp pulling the string down.

    Yes, hindsight is 20/20. Looking back, I should have purchased an Easy-3 instead of the ST-200 because of the swivel clamp, it's so handy.

    Please read the instructions that come with your stringing machine.
