    I did try mouting it closer to the turntable but it won't slide on because the bracket is too big. I tried filing it down a bit but didn't work. I may have to look into welding it on.

    Nothing happened to the side supports, I just mouted the racket on quickly just to test it.

    It's much easier to increase the hit of the turn table instead. Just add washers or similar.

    Anyway it's gripping now, but I can only get it to tension upto 23lbs. Must be because I have the head way too far away from the stringing machine. The bracket doesnt fit my XP Pro Plus, so I hammed it in but could only make it go half an inch.

    Mwesty, slide that badboy on closer to the rotating table. If youre using a reel, you'll end up using less string, and besides that, you'll have a much more accurate string job.

    It doesn't fit on the machine, it won't slide. I had to hammer it just to get it to go on an inch! Tried filing it down as well. May have to try and get someone to weld it onto the machine further up.

    Yep, no modifying necessary. It was a seamless, unmodified transition.

    However, if I couldn't get 360 degrees clearance, I would definitely modify it.

    how about everyone give measurement of the mounting bar? obviously right now that either Mwesty's mounting bar is too big, or the wise mounting hole is too small. one of them is not standard.

    did you measure the thickness of tension-bar ?
    info from Robin of Watdon, by default the bracket is for 6mm/7mm thickness, so if more then you should inform him before purchase so they can prepare the correct bracket.

    actually stringing machine owner should inform to seller (but I no idea if from Herb Wise directly), but information I got from Robin of Watdon, by default the bracket is for 6mm/7mm thickness, so if more thicker then you should inform him before purchase so they can prepare the correct bracket.

    my Eagnas Combo-910 has 7mm thickness.

    and since Mwesty is in UK, and maybe get the Wise from watdon, please contact the seller again to get the correct bracket ....

    because dink's string bed is above gripper head

    for my machine, distance from racket bast to top of cantilever is 22 cm, +/- 1mm

    I bought the machine from Gefen Sports because Watdon didn't have any in stock. He said that the Wise would fit machines that were 115mm but the Pro's Pro was 118mm and that I would need to weld it off or grind it. I still decided to get it because I thought a filer would do the job! It did, to some extend but I only ended up getting maybe a mm off. I hammered it in as far as I could (Roughly 2 inches) and used No Nailes to glue it on It's steady now, have to wait 24hrs to test it! Posted some more pictures below, excuse the quality and the socks ! They're keeping it in place while the No Nails sets.

    yeah, watdon's stock have to wait until end of April 2009.
    luckily I bought mine at watdon, and they asked me to measure the tension-head-bar before they sent off the machine.
    my tension-head-bar is 7mm thickness and 49mm width (my machine is Eagnas Combo-912).
    You may try to contact watdon for suggestion.
