I just recently bought a Gamma X-6FC dropweight machine that utilizes the older rotary drum string gripping mechanism. So far this machine has been serving me well, but I've noticed that the string gripper is actually lower than is the racket when mounted on the machine as shown in the pictures. Therefore, it touches the turntable when being tensioned, and sometimes also gets caught on the side supports. I am planning on installing another bracket on the stand that the dropweight is mounted on so that the string is pulled horizontally rather than below the horizontal. My question is: Is the design meant to be like this? If I raise the tensioning arm by 3cm, will it affect the tension being pulled negatively? **The red line shows where the horizontal pull SHOULD be.
