Looks pretty oggd, but aint the machine heads really small?

for the curve/string question, make a cureve then make a nurbs circle, select one then the other and do an extrude.

What version are you working with? Because that hard edge that is supposed to be smooth can either be fixed with the polygon sculpt tool, or by selecting the vertices of that edge manually and pusing them up and in a little.
