Hi, I've started messing around with the antique machine I got from my club that I posted pictures of in the stringing machine thread. I got some questions about adjusting the flying clamps. See pictures. What I did was I put one as a starting clamp outside the frame and tried pulling tension and checking if the string slipped. Is that a good way to test it or is it maybe unrealistically demanding and not representative of how it behaves when you clamp two strings normally? Reason I'm wondering is that even if I adjust them so they visibly crush and leave marks on the string they still slip on 11,5kg when testing that way. I guess you normally shouldn't see any marks on the string from the clamps? Also I see that they're clearly uneven so one side has a bigger gap and is looser. Which I assume isn't how it's supposed to be? So am I doing something wrong or are those 30 year old clamps just bad and need to be replaced? This is with BG65 Ti string so should be one of the most forgiving also.
