Ordering the correct string winder size

Each string winder crank is cut from curly maple to the dimensions identified

Thickness (T)

Width (W)

Depth (D)

Make sure you know what size tuner you have when you order

A string winder that is larger than your tuner will probably work but will have a sloppy fit.  A string winder with a thickness or width smaller that your tuner, will not work!  Check your size with a caliper if you are unsure.

Mandolin String Winders

F-Style (Fits Tuners by Waverly and Schaller)

Thickness = 0.29"

Width = 0.58"

Depth = 0.5"


These string winder are designed to turn without hitting the outside D and A string tuners.

F-Style Large button (Fits Tuners by Grover)

Thickness = 0.32"

Width = 0.62"

Depth = 0.5"


Like the standard F-style string winder these are designed to turn without hitting the outside D and A string tuners.

A-Style String winders (Fits most A style mandolins)

Thickness = 0.32"

Width = 0.62"

Depth = 0.5"


The A style is a shorter crank since the tuner are aligned in a row.  It fits the same tuner dimensions as the F-Style Large.

Guitar String Winders

Small Butterbean winders

 

Thickness = 0.26"

Width = 0.79"

Depth = 0.5"


These fit the smaller tuner buttons found on guitars like my Martin Custom 15 or the Collings D1-A in the photo.


Large guitar winder (fits older Grover tuners)

Thickness = 0.33"

Width = 0.79"

Depth = 0.6"


These string winders fit the larger tuners.

Medium size Guitar String Winders

Thickness = 0.29"

Width = 0.93"

Depth = 0.5"


When the butterbean is too small and the Grover is too big
