    Some machines have supports that automatically move inwards to close these gaps as the frame moves in (Babolat Stars, for example), but basic machines like ours do not. As long as the racket cannot move more than a milimetre or so, and it comes out symmetrical and with the same length/width ratio as an empty frame, you'll be fine.

    It could be that you are not tightening your shoulder supports enough at the beginning - they should be tightened until the frame just begins to deform inward (but no more); the aim is to keep the frame from moving, not to change its shape before you start.

    i'm just tightening side supports (surely touch the frame), but when i tightening the top support the top frame move outward few mm, just to make sure the frame tightened enough.
    Well my machine is a manual crank, is it normal happen when doing cross or it just me??

    ^^ It happens to me as well, so I would have to say it was normal. No frame I've ever strung has broken in the machine or come out asymmetrical, and I've done about 300...

    thats ok then, so i have to adjust the side support when it happen ha?
    Actualy the final result is perfect means that frame is in good shape, next time i'll make sure to measure frame before/after stringing...

    that happens to me on some softer racket and when i go above 25lbs. i think that is pretty normal. i just close in the side support. at this point the side supports are not doing anymore protection to the frame. the tensioned strings already is holding the racket in shape. the reason to tighten them is to keep the frame from sliding in the turntable and risk slipping out.

    from INA = Indonesia ?

    as for your information many local shop now do it from centre for the main, and 4-knots, especially if the owner join the local badminton forum www.tepokbulu.com
    some even used digital machine from Victor, Eagnas or Wise2086
    2-knot a-la Victor or Gosen Haribito also good

    now more and more shop tarik from centre for the Main, and Cross from top.

    This is normal, don't worry about it, I've done 500 rackets and no broken rackets yet. Fingers crossed.
