Hand furling machine

Postby carlz » Thu Feb 02, 2017 3:00 pm

I just ordered (2017) a hand furling machine from Amazon. It's called "Orimupasu string", it is shipped from Japan. It is OneNote the least expensive devices I have found for making furled tenkara lines. Can do 2 or 3 strand leaders. I have seen it in some other posts. So will have to keep a update when I receive it!

I'm curious how it works out. It doesn't look easy to mount on a furling board. I am very anxious to hear more about the lines you are able to make.

I didn't mount the furler on my board. Take each leg off the butt end hooks on the board, and put them on two hooks of the hand furler. Turn the handle to twist the legs until you shrink the line your 10%. Then turn the switch on the furler and turn in the opposite direction so both legs furl. Still in a learning stage. But the ones I have made looked good.
