    I was just wondering if there was a different in accuracy/quality of a stringjob done by these string machines? I'm looking to buy one for myself but i'd rather not spend 1000$ on an electric if the manual ones do the same job with just a bit more labor.

    i'm also very interested in responses here, although i have my own ideas, based on my own experiences with electrics, dropweights, gas ones, and cranks. electric ones done by certified pros seem to work the best with the most even string bed.

    Most electrics and drop weights are constant pulls which mean that they are always pulling the string. If done properly both should get you consistent results. Crank machines lockout which means that once you pull tension the string is no longer pulled and will stretch until you clamp it. All machines will get you consistent results if used properly.
