I've been using a guitar speed winder for my mando, man does it suck. Does anyone make one just for mandos? Thanks

I really do not enjoy changing strings. What will a string winder do to make my life easier?

I really like the Dean Markley TurboTune. The socket that holds the tuner button is round on the outside so it doesn't hit the adjacent buttons when you crank it. On the inside, the socket is multi-faceted so it holds any size button securely, from a bass, clear down to a mando. Also the socket disattaches and fits right into an electric screwdriver if you prefer to use it that way. I have had one for years and I use the same one on all my instruments with no problems. Here is a link:

Thanks everyone for the suggestions, I will give one of these a try, in the mean time I came up with a good temporary solution...I cut about 1/4 inch off the pocket and pluged the resulting hole, now it doesn't bang against the adjacent knobs and works much better...

I just took a guitar winder and sawed off about 1/4 inch and glued the flat piece of plastic back on, (works Good)
