Thanks for the info, it's very useful and much appreciated! However, I counted $180 worth of stuff there...even if I get plastic reels and use my watch, etc...I think it's easily $100+ to get into it...unfortunately, that's a lot of money right now...

However, it's great to know what I need, maybe I can pick it up piece by piece if I see them dirt cheap...also, great info on knowing they're not flammable or toxic! It'll definitely help me sell the idea to my parents and/or girlfriend
