Quote Kev Adams:Quote DoItAgain:
One of my old teachers taught me to just twist the excess end of the string back and forth through 180-or-so degrees (with the 'bend' created close to the post) until it breaks cleanly and with absolutely no sharp end exposed. Works a treat and I've been doing it this way for over 15 years now.
the strings never slip if they're properly fitted, once they've taken up all the slack, do they?
Agreed, they don't.
