I am now really starting to hate my guitar - I have a Hohner 6-string "ST Special" - got it for cheap, but my high E strings keep breaking at the tuner spot. I have tried to sand the tuners edges to a more round edge but that didn't seem to fix it (or I didn't do it properly)

Any ideas?

Do you have locking tuners, or regular tuners? Perhaps it is just the way you are winding the string around the post? Other than that, I have no idea.

Regular tuners - I am using HB/ST by Ernie Ball.

I am guessing it's the way I wind it too - it just goes around in a spiral, I'm not locking the string at all.

could just be the angle of the headstock. Or perhaps friction in the nut is causing to much sting tention

Well it breaks at the tuner... not the nut. When it breaks it's usually when I tune down (ironically) - haven't had it do while I tune up.
