I push #14 electrical wire though while I'm gluing the sections together and 
use that to pull the permanent wires once it's buried.  The glue on the end of 
the wire has not been an issue.

I'm about to place a number of 150' Sched 40 PVC conduits between my shack 
and new tower.   I want to end up with small 200 lb. stength nylon twine in 
each conduit, then use that small twine to pull through a larger 1/4" nylon 
rope for the actual cable pulls.

Should I use a fish tape to pull through the small twine as I glue on each 
additional section of conduit?  I'm concerned about the PVC cement sticking 
to the nylon twine.  Or is there an easy way to install the small twine 
after a whole 150' run of conduit is completely glued together?
