glue

The world’s stickiest substance,

When working with glue, resin, paint, and gell filler I tend to use a finger to spread it I recon you get a smother finish. The problem is that once I have used it is dirty so I have to use another to continue before I know it I have resin / glue on all fingers thumbs and most other surfaces. Any one know the best way to remove hypolon glue or resin off you finger nails. I tend to use petrol of thinner but usually end up using a small chisel. I am just mad or do other people end up using their hands rather than the stupid plastic spatular supplied.

try using surgical gloves on your hands before touching the glue or resin, you can buy them in boxes of 100 of £4, that what the people in the trade use, the glue and resin will damage your skin.

Glue

DGP (Ive got fairy soft hands) W,

Congratulations on discovering glue is sticky. Just to keep you ahead of the game water is wet by the way!

Did it stick OK on the GRP? I can sort you out with some gloves and that sample pot for mixing glue. (remember you forgot it on Tues eve?)

Plans/itinerary for Wed are done. We need to sort the launch site out. I reckon that hard at Isleworth will hold Mike's Landie. We can leave trailers/cars at mine and the Landie at the slip.

We will have to motor on Sunday to get down to Putney for lunch. Stacy is definately coming and maybe more of ladies from work.

Wot u reckon?

Chris

I have spent most of the day picking glue of my hands and flicking it at the girl in the office next door. She is now very pissed off and thretoning hr again. ha ha ha

Fairy Hands,

I suspect if the Landie gets stuck we will be using my golf and your Volvo!

We could launch at Twickenham.
There is a pub with a nice slipway there.

Chris.
