Sticky Situation

I started using the solvent weld to join the pipe sections together. The solvent weld system comes in two parts: A cleaner and the actual solvent weld. These are the most volatile chemicals I heave ever used. I had to ventiliate my work area three times during this operation.

The speed which the solvent sets at is scary. About 3 seconds. When I ordered I did not realise I was going to get 'very fast cure'. This is an understatement . I only just managed to align the parts in time, and there is no going back once it has set.

Interesting. I have some of the that, but only one part. I didn't realise it came in two parts as CC gave me it.
