    Hi Pete,

    Just wondering, does this beauty self calibrates? That will push Sir Dink over the edge.

    It still requires the occassional manual calibration. I do have the electronic calibrator. Will post a photo later.

    I will not purchase this machine because of what Pete and I discussed. I'll look at the Aria or DG or a few other stringers now.

    Make sure the distance between the posts can be adjusted closer than the Opus .

    Quasi, here is the photo. For your information, I have seen the badminton shoulder support adaptors from Neil's Gamma machine. They are nice and fit the frame perfectly.

    nice,
    my dad has a 'welding company' to put it simple and blunt () and helped me out with some of those V-supports (homemade). here's what we discovered:

    -the tiny hole at the back can be much bigger..it's so small to keep it safe when stringing tennis-machines..
    -the outer ends of the V are pretty useless when you don't strign tennisrackets, they actually stopped my clamps from being able to clamp the the frame.

    I'd love to take a foto, but the camera is on a holiday at my dad's workshop...

    Not saying you should try and destroy your support (would hate it if my 'advise' ruined them...) but do you know any friends with soem workshop skills?

    Silent Partner sells them (4 V-supports) separately for $20 plus $10 shipping to SoCal. I ordered a set to use with my Alpha Revo... It's still a work in progress.

    Congratulations Pete... awesome machine... where did you get the additional supports for the head and the throat? I mean that plastic piece that looks like a fork... I called Silent Partner to see if they would sell them separately, and they said that its not theirs. I think those supports would fit most 6 pt suspension mount machines to add better racket protection at the head and throat area.

    The Opus doesn't look like it is built for badminton. It looks more like a tennis stringing machine that has been compromised for badminton stringing. The two posts are hanging in no man's land, the side supports do not support the optimal parts of the frame (between grommets #10-11 at the top and grommets #12 and 13 at the bottom), and the side supports are just too big. Perhaps you can get another turntable for badminton because at this level the machine should come with interchangeble turntables and side supports for tennis, squash, and badminton.

    Maybe if Pete put the side supports in the other set of slots and re-adjusted, the posts would be less hanging. It looks like a bit of adjustment could get the side supports where you say.

    Yep, good observation, Sir.
