Re: Kansas City Cabela's
I built my furled leader board in two 3' pieces, and put hinges on the back and a latch on the front. That way, when I'm done furling, I can fold the board up and put it aside. Also, it is then easy to travel with!
I use a Dremel to furl. It's not so much in counting, but feel of the leader as you go. Haven't had much problem since learning the feel of the different threads I use.
Hope that helps.
