OK, when I do the pre-string normally, I loop one of the mains around the butt of the racket right? Well, that's not enough string for this new machine because the gripper is too far away. I know a few that do two loops but that doesn't leave enough string to pre-string the last 5 or so cross strings.
Now I know a few more that do two equidistant loops that are longer but the loops are not taut and it makes pre-weaving the crosses very difficult. So what they do is tie the two loops around the shaft. It works for them but for me, I worry about damaging the string.
Make sense now?

I was thinking of different knots..my bad...
For me, I juts cut 5,5-6 armlength and it works perfectly.. Two loops around the butt-end and finished..
I have no idea how long that is though
Expert stringer? meh... I think I know how it works, but expert is a big word .. But stringing isn't rocket science
okay, I span 190cm, so I use ~10,5m... Not as bad as I thought..

Anyway, I bet a few pictures would be worth a thousand words.

yeah, I tried to take a pic... but my computer crashed when I plugged in the webcam :|
darn free-webcam.. everybody I know who got one has the same blue-screen-of-death issue...
anyway, I do indeed waste some string, I guess on the first tie off (the 'short' side mains) i throw away one of two feet of string...
But that roughly translates itself into ~1dollar per string job...
well worth it not having to plow through those nasty holes at bottom #12, #10, or that pesky #11 which is always blocked by a string...

(put up by the inventor, no less). If my enterprise takes off like I hope then I will definitely be bagging one of these (and probably a Toalson X-ST on which to mount it).
I still want to see Dan's rendition, though - did you get the foot controls as well?
