looking at making some strings and was wondering how many on adverage do you get out of a 1/4 ib spool of material ? and does it work out much cheaper than just buying strings ?

Lots...
But mostly we don't make strings because it's cheaper, we do it because we get to control the results.

I have forgotten the maths, because the the manufacturers sell string material by weight and not linear distance the answer isn't immediately apparent.

I do recall that you can work on in the order of 40 medium length 18 strand recurve strings from a 1/4lb of fast flight. that drops the cost per string to so low that it's not a consideration unless you're running a business.
