    I'm going to assume this is for calibration, yes? And it works horizontally as well? man I was looking for a good cheap one.

    And the grommet grinder is for removing grommets, yes? While this may be more expensive by 5 dollars, you get two instead of one.

    I am so happy that people are finding good deal and sharing. Some of them might be good for x-mas gift.

    Oh yea. I'd love some Yonex flying clamps for X-mas. The cheapest I could find them are $28.35 (after CA sales tax) from somewhere I can get someone to pick up for me (Badminton Alley in San Jose, CA), anyone found anything better?

    Or, if anyone wants, I can buy a bunch, and redistribute. If I remember right, there's a 5 dollar shipping box that should accommodate any number of yonex flying clamps to anywhere in the US.

    These are awesome!!! I compared mine to my boss' $200 electronic professional calibrator and works pretty much the same. I was also thinking about getting digital caliper to measure guage of string

    and I have a scale to weigh rackets

    My supplier sells them for 10.95 + VAT with a 5% discount, so they come out at 11.96 (but VAT is going back up to 17.5% next year, so they'll be 12.22 from then on). In $US this is around $19.74/$20.17.

    I see. Thanks mark, but with shipping, I think it would come out to be no more than a dollar or two of savings, not worth the trouble really.

    Kakinami, I'd be willing to pay in money order or paypal, but unless the savings outweighs the amt i pay for shipping for 4 clamps by more than a few dollars each, the same goes.

    I can get you clamps for $25 each tax included. BA would be like $66 with shipping for a pair. I can get them to you for $55 shipped to Davis. I could prolly meet up in the bay area to drop off.

    See now that's a deal i can take advantage of. I'll let you know once I round up 50 bucks. My spending money is all gone for this month after buying a new (used) stringing machine.

    Don't assume,
    I bought 4 pcs YY clamps from them and it was a total of 50 pounds ~ USD81.80. The royal post only charged 6.2 pounds for the shipping to north america.
