how many times have you used those 5 min epoxy syringe type dispensers and they don't come out evenly from each tube, then you mix them both together apply it to what you are gluing only to realize hey not having the same amount of both parts don't dry to darn quick.......don't know why i didn't think of this early i guess it didn't upset me enough to do something about it, so i cut the darn sections to be on their own...now i can put the same amount from both tubes....

Hehe, clever Razz

You mean you just don't use the entire tube and do as many things as possible before it's gone? Hmmm this could save me hundreds of dollars.... Wink

as one piece it never seems to come out in the same amount from each side so now i can put the same from each side evenly first one then the other then mix,   Derek said he just rocks the syringe back and forth but sometimes that works other times it still just puts more of one than the other

Also good to know.
BTW thought there was only one version but discovered quite by accident that there are cure time versions from 90 sec to 3 hours.( in case you didn't already know)

The marine epoxy is 2 hours, but needs 24 hours to cure.  Cures like concrete.  If you want something NEVER to come apart, use the Marine epoxy.
