or so I thought

I can't get consistent feed from PLA. There were a few times it would feed perfectly for a few minutes, but now I can't even duplicate that much. Eventually, it gets jammed up in the extruder barrel. Frustrating. I can get it to squirt a foot or two of extruded plastic before it starts jamming. Then I have to either push it out with extreme pressure, or drill it out. If I'm really careful, and a bit lucky, I can pull a plug out and then squeeze out the remainder with a metal rod. I even re-built the hot end twice, with no improvement. :-(
