One warning... Make sure to use these on a low torque screwdriver speed. Using with a single (high) speed drill will wind the string up too quickly.
Good point! Thus, the manual peg winder is a better choice, which safely speeds up the process.
I got a $15 one for Christmas, has its own clippers, just got to use it, but not using a drill :)

I know it’s going to be a lot easier, but I have to fist try and get used to my new 12.9” iPad, I have a thread on which one to buy if anyone is interested. I have not touched the guitar since I got it, but to me the learning curve is high for more complicated things.

Cheers,

Alan
I just got an Ernie Ball power peg, that looks like a small drill. It was $12.99. It has one speed, sorta slow. I wouldn’t use a drill either.

I wish I had used it today, at least it will make it an easier job with or without the "drill!
