    The shoulder supports should be similar to the Yonex ST-250 but V shaped.

    have to agree that the Yonex support is more compact and give more clearance.

    anybody has a milling machine i can use?

    Kwun is afflicted with the most severe form of poisoning . . .

    I can't believe he gets this hardcore with stringing.

    Kwun are your supports fastened on the bottom of the arm? Seems like your modified nut situation is a pretty good solution. I think I might try something similar. The other thing you could do is take a 1/4 piece of scrap metal, get a basic circle shape and drill it like a washer.

    no they are not fastened. only friction and gravity hold it in. a bit dangerous but seems to be ok. i don't do crazy tension anyway so should be alright.

    i was at homedepot looking for anything that can do the job. the nuts costs 11 cents each without any hassle. i am cheap.

    Nice cut! Even with a mill you probably couldnt have gotten it that much cleaner. I think im going to try and make mounts from some derlin blocks matched up with a bolt possibly.

    Delrin being a less stiff material than most metal will mean you need to use more material and thus the end result will be bulkier. i think the older version of ASE as well as the HQSE has Delrin as the side support. Delrin is 10x easier to work with. the other issue is how do you effectively mount the bolt on the support without any sacrifice in rigidity.

    The person to ask about rigidity is our Panda SirDink. He has done major work with the Opus shoulder supports on the Eagnas machine.

    I must be dyslexic because I always say and type Der-Lin, whatever. I actually have two other candidates of similar properties/background. One is ultra high molecular weight polyethylene or high molecular weight polyethelene aka UHMWPE/HMPE and the other is Corian. Im probably going to try corian first because of its availability. Im going to try Corian first for two reasons: its ease of use, it cuts and handles just like wood and also because of its low cost/easy availability, free samples at any home depot/lowes.

    Only reason i know about these materials is because I used to skateboard and we make "sliding gloves." For a while most people used cutting boards stuck to gardening gloves but then everyone began to experiment and HMPE and Corian got pretty popular.

    I think ill give this a go monday when I can get the big saws out

    about Corian, yes it is cheap. my only concern would be how tough a material it is. one of Delrin advantage is that it is tough. it takes a lot of strength to snap it. Corian is mainly developed for kitchen surfaces and since it is mounted on wood most of the time, i wonder if it is tough material or will it snap under tension.
