O.K. folks, here is a well-made practical tool. It is designed to wind & unwind strings on a guitar - not to change tires on a NASCAR racer. Just put batteries (not included) in it, take it out of park, and pull the trigger - forward or reverse, your choice. Simple. It works. The end.

Guitarists, DO NOT BUY THIS PIECE OF JUNK! I bought one today, and took it back to the store within an hour. Poor quality electrical contacts make it work intermittently. In other words, when you pull the trigger, it might come on, or it might not. The quality is so cheap to begin with. You feel more like you are holding a kid's toy in your hand instead of a serious tool that a professional musician or technician would use. Ernie Ball owes us an apology on this one! By the way, if yours does work, GO SLOW when putting on a string. If you tension it up too fast, and the string goes ka-pop, then it is your fault, not that of the device. You would be better off getting a string crank that can be adapted to an electric drill. Be careful though. Operator error can happen with that also. One more thing. They say that the four AA batteries are included. This is a flat-out lie. Avoid this thing at all costs!

    Well designed. I was using a drill attachment plugged into an electric screwdriver. This is easier to handle and use. Always use the tool designed for the job!

        Comments about Ernie Ball PowerPeg Battery Powered String Winder:

        I've had mine 2-3 years now and it started working intermittently about a year ago. Now it won't work at all. I've taken it apart and the issue is in the switch. So it is time now for a new winder.
        Having stated my disappointment, in fairness... What did I expect for 20. I expected I would get more than a dozen uses out of it.
        I might get the Pro or even the Penguin by B-Band next time.

                Have been putting off buying one of these for a long time. Finally got one yesterday. Really like it. Very handy tool. Makes stringing a guitar much easier. I have 8 guitars to string so it is especially nice to have.

                            Says fits all acoustic tuning pegs, but notches are too big for mandolin. Had to silly putty holes to get it to makeshift work. Still wobbles around, but it is faster than winding by hand.

                              This takes the angst out of string changes.

                                I love this product. It saves a lot of time and it gives you a professional looking job by winding the strings evenly. Some of the other reviewers complained about it winding the strings too tightly and breaking them. Obviously you don't use this product for the final tuning. Just snug them up and then turn the tuning machines by hand to do that. It winds fairly fast but not to the point that you can't release the trigger before it snaps the string. As far as battery use, I've only used it one time. So I couldn't say how long the batteries will last. Hopefully the new Energizer batteries I installed will last for several string changes.
