Sorry guys, I am from Europe and I made a mistake when I converted from cm to inches. It is actually 0,15 inches distortion. This affected the playability of my racket big time. This happens when I string my crosses more than 1 lbs less than my mains. Therefore I always string my crosses at the same tension or 1 lbs higher (I never tried a higher difference for my crosses) than my mains. Then the distortion is 0,06 inches (wider) and my racket plays fine.

Irvin, I am not sure if your post still applies, now you know the distortion is less than I previously said, but I am sure my standards (you mean both 'arms' of my stringmachine I presume?) are secured.
