i haven't dropped this topic. i am still trying to understand the implications of putting the support inside vs. outside the mains.
here is another food for thoughts. what this is a my attempt to see what angle the string exits the frame and goes to the tensioner. initial thought tells me that the angle of the string will originate through the center of the circle. but not sure if that would be the actual case.
the picture below is a composite of many photos, each one with a single string slightly tensioned and thus resting at the final angle in which it will exit the frame. i basically just took 19 pictures and combined them for visualization purposes.
the placement of the support would ideally be between the strings exit paths, so that the support won't make any contact with the string itself in either side reducing any loss in tension from friction and or deflection. it also means ideally the support should be narrow enough to do so.
another observation is that the angle in which the support makes with the tangent of the frame is not necessarily 90 degrees. in fact, most likely it is not 90degrees.

NVM this, I read "outside the frame" and not "outside the mains", I was so confused! lol
I think you want them inside the mains because of the deformation that happens when you pull the mains. That tension on the frame causes the most deformation at 3 and 9 o'clock, so having the supports closer to those points will prevent horizontal deformation.

hi, just wondering which shops and website are the best for strining machine accessories? e.g. load spreaders and side supports. also which shape side support is the best?

What are these side supports called?

Where can I get the piece from 3:03? I don't understand the name of the website.
