Parachord also comes in blue, grey and black.
Finding the paracord made my day today.
I cut my jig from a cereal box, I put the rough side down so it feeds more consistently. I tape the line to the jig at the top and bottom under a little tension to keep it straight........But same idea as you are using just make sure your feeder isn't slipping on the plastic... I can keep it straight pretty easily but my machine jams up randomly whilst pounding multiple holes in the same spot shredding the line a little. This is stressful when putting the second sleeve on at the finalized length when I can't just cut off the shredded bit and restart.
I've tested a few of my lines to failure where I did a REALLY bad job (and wasn't willing to use em) and they still didn't fail in the stitching or at the shredded bit, However don't wanna push it.
Now that I've got some cheap sheathing I can practice a lot more on loose bits of line and try to diagnose what's going on with the sewing machine prior to sewing in the second line.
I bought all colours of powerline pro
So far I've made a bunch of extensions and restrung 3 bars that were otherwise trash and have 2 more to go. (one I made from scratch using a few switch parts) $500 bucks for a bar and line set that I get 1 year out of is a little steep for my budget. They've pushed it well passed my tipping point.
