Btw, this won't help y'all but changing paper on the SuperMax takes all of about 2-3 minutes. I don't know what's different on the clips but I clip the left side, spin the drum to wrap the paper, and clip it into the right side. After a couple of passes I check it to see if either end has loosened any due to paper stretch, the roll settling in, etc.

David, I leave a 1/16 space all the way instead of the wide one on the end.

Both ways are good. The drum expands after some use due to heat build up.

Overlaps kill you they create burns.
