    the simple solution would be to raise the turntable by raising the side mounts. that works for me.

    machining the horizontal bar is ok. but you are talking about some really heavy duty stainless steel here. it took me well over a minute or two to drill each hole. it is some strong stuff. if you have access to a milling machine, or sand/water cutter, then i think it is OK to do. otherwise, forget about doing it.

    i forgot to take a photo of the shaft/gripper clearance. will take some tonight after badminton.

    your drawing gave me idea ........ just buy a stainless-steel plate-strip and do fabrication as per your drawing and keep the original one along with the crank.

    imo getting a strip milled/drilled is easier than getting that riser made. Maybe if that rise was one piece, milled it would be easy. Either way yes, a machinist would be required. The bar looked like a chrome plated piece of iron/steel to me. I drilled through an eagnas base plate with ease on a drill press, and that place is probably 1/8+" thick.

    that's possible. i think you can probably get that done in China for $10.

    Sorry, I was a little late on riser issue. From Kwun's first picture and I use it and circle in red, there are 2 bolts mount the turning mech to the base and 2 bolts mount the top bar to the turning head. Can we open them up and see if there is a thread for the bolts to mount them in? If yes, you need to drill 2 holes at higher location and thread them on the other side with the tool you can buy at Home depot, Lowes or Sears. If not, just move the bar and tighten the bolts again.

    i have opened them before.

    there are threads and they are in the horizontal bar.

    i orginally was going to say that there isn't much space to move them. but then i realized that all it need is around 5mm. which is probably ok. might be a bit too close to the edge though. it will take drilling a hole and then buying/borrowing a thread cutter.

    here is my solution to raising the racket. did one racket with it. seems ok. i think i can do with less raise though.

    this photo also shows that the side support is way way too large for badminton rackets. it would be nice if they shave off half the height. that will allow for less obstruction.
