When you state "distortion", is this distortion of the frame that you see while stringing, that is temporary and goes away or is this permanent? Permanent would be an issue if it is outside of the normal elongation (if I have this right) of a fraction of an inch that would be seen due to the tensioning of the strings.

My first machine was an X2, and although a very good machine to learn on, one of my issues was that 2 point mounting system did allow considerable flex of the frame during the stringing process. But this wasn't permanent and appeared to be primarily due to the limited support of the frame during stringing, and even more evident with OS frames.
