You're right. The tension bar applies a constant torque which is always there. It simply adds to the torque from the dropweight (which is by far greater).
I just meant that, I neglected that part when I wrote down the equation using the dropweight as the sole source of pulling force.

Indeed, it does not introduce an error in the actual stringing of the racquet.
