    Question What is supposed to be the appropriate height for the machine?

    .
    For me, elbow height is best.

    For you (being a taller person), you will need to raise your machine much higher than average.

    The answer here is simple: Why stand when you can sit?

    The height of your palms up and down, while your elbows at you side with you fore arms forward. Give or take an inch. Any lower and you're asking for a sore back.

    You are correct.

    If ever we get a sore back after stringing a racket, the height of the machine must be too low. That's why I suggested to kwun to raise his machine higher than normal (just because he is a taller person).

    When I had my Eagnas Flex 940, the maximum string bed height was like 42", 2 inches below my current normal height of 44". Given that the stand base is now directly mounted to the tension rail. It would be lower than a normal machine because the legs of the ASE are no longer used.

    interesting.

    so with my setup now, the string bed is around 1 inch higher than elbow height. so there is hope that it is ok.

    but i also that before when i sat down with the machine on a small table, the height is higher. probably 3-4 inches higher.

    will report back when i get a chance to use it, which should be this weekend. order a ton of strings and will be going into full stringing mode.

    Kwun, when did you buy your Wise 2086 Pro? I just noticed it's missing the gripper trigger.

    I guess another comfortable position would be sitting on a stool, while stringing.

    I got mine a few months after they upgraded the gripper switch, I think it was October 2010.

    I seen some older model with a rigged switch. Did you get the foot switch with your unit?

    yes. i have a footpedal. never used it though. maybe now i will with me standing up.

    just bounced a mail to WISE to see if the switch can be retrofitted. considered doing it myself but seems to be neater if can get the original parts.

    If you have the new switch you will not be able to use the pedal switch.

    If you can fins a 1/8th" mono headphone jack splitter you can use both, but if you have the gripper trigger you don't need the foot switch.

    strung 2 rackets using the new stand. the height is ok. but i think sometimes i do tend to crouch down a little when i am doing cross weaves.

    and i also used the footpedal since i can move around. seems to work OK.

    Herb says the parts to add the switch is $60, which includes new side plates for the gripper and the switch itself. the side plates has holes which the screw going into to attach the switch.

    Did you have to send your unit in or is he letting you DIY?
