First thing first, the side frame supports are on the arms not hanging out of the arms. It is worth every penny to get that universal five-prong clamps after you've spent so much. It is easier to adjust and eliminate the chance of damaging string.
A string mover is handy in making room for block grommet hole; pulling the string.
At the meantime, there is a thread on how to adjust the clamp for various size of strings.
Using flying clamps may save time at least on average of 22 locking and 22 unlocking the clamps.
The racket shouldn't be distorted with same tension on both ways. But with 10% increment on horizontal string, there is certain distortion in controlled and balanced manner. Main vertical string should be strung alternative sides not complete one side then the other later.

I think they are scare of hitting the gripper to the badminton handle. For some players, they have their badminton handles as big as the tennis rackets' ones.

If you care about such things, you need to balance the string savings against the tension error.

Sometimes it gets close when in the normal position, but it's not actually touching as seen below:
I actually received some flying clamps yesterday which I quite like, but I am also exchanging my 3 pronged clamps for the 5 pronged ones that you have. I actually slightly ripped one of my strings yesterday from clamping too tight with the 3 pronged clamp but the string survived
I bought a toolbox along with the machine so I have a cutter, straight plier, string mover and awl. I'm not too confident using the string mover yet though, I'm scared to break something from pulling too hard. Usually using the pliers works fine for shared holes so far.

When I first got my WISE I had to use the "business card" solution, but that's so Blue Peter...

I think we are using the latest version of WISE, so the gripping shouldn't be any problem on fine string like Zymax 62 with 0.62 dia.

Simple solution if those K Frame supports do not reach your badminton racquet. Some card between the adjustment knob which has contact on to the side arm will do the trick, on the underside.

Funnily enough I saw the exact same machine as mine in MBS shop and Hippo Sports in HK but under a different brand. The MBS machine didn't have the same problem as mine but the owner said he had to do some other modifications to get the frame support height the way that he wanted.
