Thread: A Rare Opportunity...

I was observing my friend stringing badminton rackets on his electronic machine - Technicffibre. Judging from the time the machine to complete one pull, is about 3-4 seconds. I think I can do it with my foot pedal drop wt. machine at the same rate since I am quite proficient with my machine. However, he can weave a lot quicker than I could because he has been stringing many rackets for years. In addition, little effort is required on a electronic than mechanical machine - more efficient when you are stringing many rackets in a day.
Assuming constant pull is not part of the equation, if you can improve weaving speed and achive 3 second or less for each pull with your machine, you are there.

It takes about 5 to 6 seconds for electronic machines to achieve constant pull tension.
But we are addicted to constant pull .

I know that i definately need to improve my weaving speed on the crosses...

Yeah, weaving the cross very fast without axial twist is not easy.

I'll post detailed instructions on how I do it one of these days. I have a way so you get minimal to zero axial twist now.

Do I understand you are using the NGP basketweaver technique?

Not trying to "pour cold water" on your head, but one thing you might want to be prepared for is, how you balance the relationship between you and the club owners.
Now, you are just a helpful customer. You pay your fees, and even willing to help out. Of course, they would love to have a young man being around, help out here and there, with very minimal spending. Also, you have NO threat to their business at all at this moment. Yeah, you do string racket, but with very limited amount, it hardly even scratch their skin, never to mention seems they have too much to handle anyway.
However, further down the road, if they see you as a potential business competitor (e.g. some of their players directly bring rackets to you, due to whatever reason, such as price, delivery time, job quality, etc), then the relationship might go very sour. I got such painful experience before.
My suggestion is, make your point very clear to them, as you purely want to help them out (with a very small quatity of rackets), and have no intention other than "being a good kid". Don't get yourself over-involved, and don't accept any offer blindly. Think twice, and no rush.
