Many months ago, I ordered new filament for my stocks. I order exclusively from New Image Plastics in that I know that Jim Waring there charges low rates and has consistently high quality. What with the economic troubles Jim has had trouble in recent years finding a broker willing to deal with small orders of less common polymers like ABS. He found such a broker recently, though, and was able to fill my order. :-)

Yesterday, my filament arrived; thirty lbs of 3 mm ABS at $7.95/lb and 10 lbs of polypropylene at $4.25/lb. With the ABS I already have, I think I am now set for the year.
