Is this good practice?

If you mean leaving the racquet half strung with the drop weight arm resting on the frame, no, it is not good practice, unless the objective is to damage it.

Also, can't see the flying clamp on strings, it might be there though, since drop weight may be covering it. Also, string looks like it went from middle crosses to top cross, although I thought it was part of ATW string job.

My drop weight machine would let its arm rest on frame.
It has a break point on which its arm would rest while you do
the weaving.....

You forgot to position the L shaped metal rod (it has a plastic sleeve on the end) that is located behind the the chrome plated metal piece at the pivot point. When rotated into position it won't allow the arm to rest on the racket frame. Just loosen the retaining nut, rotate the piece into position, and tighten the nut. For shipping purposes the piece is rotated out of the way. READ THE MANUAL!!!!!!!

Wow you guys found other mistakes I didnt see. I leaning more towards where he/she started the crosses, throat to head. Thats a no no......no? It should be head to throat.

the second cross on the throat looks wrong.

My initial response was throat to head...bzzzzzz! Wrong!

I also noticed that the arm appears to be resting on an ABANDONED frame.

Not good. All you players out there; make sure you know how your frame is being treated.

The 2ns cross (from the throat up) looks wrong somehow.

Another example of a home stringer trying to save a few bucks. Take it to a reputable shop!!!!

Looks like he skipped the wrong main too...

The knob that sets the weight should not be positioned in that manner. Unless you want a scratched up scale.
