Seriously, this issue has been documented going back years. It happens on every type of stringing machine. Is it a coincidence it's always Head frames? Probably not. Sometimes it happens, sometimes not depending on the type of string used and the tension.
Let's stop beating a dead horse here like others have stated.
Bud, I by no means wanted to beat a dead horse by posting that. I just decided to share my experience since the subject was about, mainly, Head frames and frame distortion. And I just started stringing by myself 4 months ago.
As Irvin has written, I also noticed that all frames elongates a bit after mounted, but they all come to their normal shape after strung.
