Going over to continuous filament

Tommelise seems to be operating reliably enough that I don't have to watch it every minute so I shifted over from using 18" HDPE rods to continuous filament. I bought a pound coil from New Image some time ago. It should last me till the ten pound coil I ordered this morning arrives.

I was a little worried in that the coil was white rather than translucent. I did a work run on it, however, and it pumps and extrudes quite as easily as the HDPE rod that I have. I've got about sixty metres of the filament. That should last me for a few days at least.
