    Driver bit organizer (portable)

    Thread Starter: andrew whicker

    Climate & Glue

    Thread Starter: Curt Putnam

    Ruined a glue up a few days ago. I used TB III - weather was 95 with an ambient humidity of 15%. I believe (did not time it) that the glue and tacked and set beyond my ability to move the pieces in about 120 seconds.
