As people have said, you should finish a full string job at once. If some emergency comes up as you finish your mains, at the very least don't take the racket off the machine because the machine is helping to support your racket until you get the crosses strung.
You guys are right. He said he started the mains in all three rackets and the he strung the crosses in two of them. He's lucky only one broke.
