    Yes it cured amen, I was starting to think I mixed part A twice ever do that.

    I did once when shop company ask you questions when you are mixing a batch

    24 hrs that sure slows down any progress you think you are making THX

    That's why i don't use it.

    I don't have the Time to wait for Epoxy to Dry.

    We use the 5 minute.

    It is set in 20 minutes and on the line in 45 minutes.

    It does totally Cure overnight but that would be in the Box on the way to the Distributor.

    If You need to color your Epoxy--It is best to actually color it with the Dust from the Micarta or wood You are working on.

    That does not effect the Strength or the Drying Time.

    For Black--we use Black Pigment from the hardware Store.

    I hear ya on a quick cure

    I might be messed up but, I think there is actual Ivory dust in that epoxy???

    Don't know but it smells exactly like grinding Ivory. I bought it to fill an mammoth ivory inside core cone that has some layer seperation in it for a stick tang handle.

    Why I used it I do not know.
    Ths stuff K&G stuff sucks it shrinks big time when curering atleast 35%.

    I alway dovetail my bolsters and wanted to do this knife old school without them DT and without any liner material also. a clean look. The MI is busy enough.

    Dam I should have dovetailed it !!! The liner material is big time more forgiving. No excuses but its been a long time
