Something has gone wrong with my RepRap...

Like a scene out of a cartoon, the feed tube of my Huxley Reprap extruder got a great big bulge in it.

I suspect I got some foreign matter in the feed when I changed over the filament, which blocked the nozzle. Rather than have a look to see what the problem was, when the filement was slowly dribbling out, I let it run thinking (hoping) that it might clear itself. You can see the result.

Maybe it's time to order some spares.
