    String winder

    Hey all,
    Looking to buy a string winder. None say mandolin specific, but I am sure some will fit. Probably some better than others. What works for you?

    I find myself in agreement with the above. There are so many paths and choices now I like them all so to focus one one end is impossible. So trying not to overthink it and thereby over complicate it...
