I'm gonna yak here for a second...

HERE'S THE SKINNY; I string a LOT of guitars, and have since 1977. I use a high-speed 600RPM dedicated cordless screwdriver (the Ryobi Tec 4V). I really wanted to like this PW Drill Bit Peg Winder adaptor, but I find it too cumbersome to work with at high speed. Although most people would find its multi-instrument design to be an asset, I find it makes this adaptor too big and clumsy for my guitar work. This is why I ONLY USE IT ON BASSES.

On guitar tuners, it utterly engulfs the tuner knobs in its behemoth maw and disconnects me from one of the important things I monitor while stringing at industrial speeds. (I monitor the string wrap, string tension, turning post and knob while aligning the string in the nut and on the saddle). If I can't see the knob, I feel like I'm disconnected from what's happening.

Another thing is that this winder adaptor is made from a resin that is IMHO is too hard to have spinning at the speed I'd be using it at right next to expensive guitar wood and metal with delicate finishes. However, because bass tuners are much larger, this adaptor usually doesn't come too close to the headstock of a bass.

IMHO, Planet Waves usually makes pretty decent and innovative products, although I've heard from a lot of techs that they dislike PW stuff. I'm not sure why. I know Daddario's CS is obnoxious to communicate with and doesn't listen to their customers (anymore), but they do arguably make one of the best strings and other neat products for the musician.

Although I don't personally like the Planet waves Drill Bit Peg Winder, it does have a metal shank and it should last two lifetimes. Maybe it'll work for you?

Hope this review helps someone.

Wow! This string winder is real evolutionary progress in guitar mantenance science. I'm no longer using my fingers or spinning a primative plastic tool winding strings. Now that we have guitar tools that use electricity what will they think of next? Fire? The wheel?

This works really well on my dewalt cordless screwdriver if you have a twelve string guitar or a few guitars this will make winding those strings a lot faster and easier

Works as expected on yamaha guitar. Used a variable speed drill on low setting. Recommended just to make the job quicker and neater.

I remember the first time I put strings on a guitar. It took me one hour. Since then I have learned how to do it.
I could easily have made one of these but the price is reasonable. I love this thing. I have a small battery screwdriver. This made it easy to remove the strings. THE BEST PART is when I used it putting the new strings on. FOR the first time I had a nice clean perfect wrap. I know this is not needed to restring a guitar but please don't be so CHEAP!! this tool is GREAT and awesome. Even with a plastic winder I can't do as nice a job. This allowed me to focus on holding the string and guiding it while the tool did the winding. YES I love this!

Great product, works perfect. If you have several guitars to change (strings) at once you will really appreciate this gadget.
