I need to find a cheap wench (.... I know.... how else am I gonna say it???) and a scale that will register 400 lbs. (again... refer to the previous parenthetical statement). I found a really good deal on jig, but of course funds are low... (I am perpetually cursed by right church, wrong pew) so I think I can make one. I found a chart that details the number of strands needed for any given draw weight...

I just didn't understand the 1/4# thing. I have a spool of Bohning serving thread I'm pretty happy with along with the bobbin. Just need a set of decent string splitters.

I like the numbers on that BCY. That was my primary target, but I looked at the Brownells too. Thanks guys!

Rick, If you are trying to stretch out a string all you need is a small piece of angle iron, eye bolt, a few nuts and washers and a die spring. If you want I could take pictures of the one I just built last week. PM me if you want.
