4 knots pre-stringing technic
In a 4 knots pre-stringing, in the crosses, what should be done in terms of the string left for the machine strain and what is the length for the mains and crosses?

free string like Dinkalot in his video (which is a one piece) make sure the crosses reach the end. also: put one extra cross at the bottom!.
tension your mains, tie off the short end, and cut bottom cross string (the extra) and tie off the 'long side' mains. you now have all mains tensioned and knotted, and all crosses freestrung. decide where to start for tensioning you crosses..
note: this take a little bit extra string, and some planning/insight...

In a 4 knots stringing where are you going to leave the extra string for the crosses?

or, if you've been generous in cutting the length, there's enough up top..

it might sound very dangerous, but just trý it...
-cut 10m of your reel, oruse a pack.
-freestring it like Dan (though he does a 2pc indeed)
-but add a cross to the bottum.
my extra cross wasn't even weaved, and went from hole #8 to #6 (cocked indeed)
-just continue freestringing upwards till the last cross.
-now tension the mains. you need two loops for that, one loop end at the 'short side' and one at the 'long side' (were it regularly goes over into the cross)
-tie off the short side as usual.
- at the long side make a cut in the bottom (unweaved) main. just cut it through down the middle. use one end to tie off the 'long side' mains.
-nwo you suddenly have a length of extra string (from the loop you used for tensionign the mains)
-make a starting knot at grommet #6, make sure you use as less string as you can. (you see, that's why my bottom cross went form #8 to #6, easy for tie offs)
-you now have a loop at the first bottom cross. tension it bottum to top..the end...
EDIT: or, if you ahve enough length left on top, tie a starting know there and string it top down..

If you have pre-strung as 1-piece, the long side of the mains will feed into the bottom cross.
When you finish tensioning the mains, the loop you had for the long side main will now be a long loop feeding into the bottom cross. Cut this string leaving just enough to tie off the long side main, and what is left is what you tie your cross starting knot with.

That doesn't stop you pre-stringing it in 1 piece.

just get a racket, and a pack of strings, and try free stringing it 1pc, thén when all the mains are done, read this thread..it should be clear...

What do you want?
You want to do the pre-stringing, and then give it to somebody else to tension it?

Pre-stringing it for them won't help much if the stringer is no good.
We need to find a decent stringer for you...
Whereabouts in Portugal are you?
