It never fails. You get everything ready. You mix up your epoxy glue and start spreading, and about halfway through your project you are straining to pull the speader out of the glue. A few seconds later it’s stuck there for good, and your glue job isn’t quite finished.

Here’s a tip for those who glue.

To slow the setup time of epoxy glue, take a cold can of soda, turn it upside-down unopened, and mix the epoxy ingredients in the recessed bottom of the can. Contact with the cold aluminum will slow the chemical setup process. Don’t set the can down till the epoxy ingredients harden or the can will be there for a while — a long while.
