Measure it from tuner posts E -> D, A -> G etc etc cut the string slot the end down and bend then just wind normally, im presuming u mean like vintage tuners?

On the high E give it about 2 inch to be on safe side.. with my strat i just roughly guess on the legth past the headstock

wrap it once over the piece sticking out, then finish winding under the part sticking out.

I'm assuming they have a hole in the center of the post?

What I would do is pull the string [taught] past its post and clip it about 1.25" past center. Slip it into the hole, bend it down, then tighten as you normally would.

Re-read

Before you slot it in the hole, pull the string taught past the center of the post. Measure about 1-1.25" past the post and clip the string off.

The left over slack should give you enough post windings for stability.

You have to bend the string through the slot and possibly hold it down for the first wrap.

mine are the same, wrap it round a couple of times first as tight as you can, then put the end down the hole and continue winding the rest of the string round, eventually you will just be able to tune it into place.
