    I buy it by the gallon. Stirring is going to be an issue.

    What about just rotating it once in a while?

    The rep said that shaking was not going to be enough. The stuff they add to slow it down are heavy and you really need to stir it up other wise you will end up with thick gunk at the end. I've use it and it is nice, it dries clearer the just Titebond I or II

    Glenn I don't think that would be enough

    Stir it is then. I'm sure someone in the group could come up with a system. Maybe a 1/4 dowel with a few 1/8 dowels through the end, just big enough to go through the hole in the top of the bottle. Put it in your drill and presto! (glue everywhere) Just like stirring paint.

    I think they sell small paint stir rods. If not it will be easy enough to make up one. I need to check the label and see if it says anything about stirring.

    Stuart, the bottle does in fact say if it appears to have settled to shake it. I think like Bob had said that the rep recommended stirring rather than shaking he is probably speaking from experience.

    Sounds awesome with all those species. Do you have a plan yet?

    Your designs are AWESOME Bob. I just haven't had chance to sit and play with the program to the level that I would like.

    Yes, but that is on hold with a high frustration factor

    Beautiful, what did you end up for wall thickness?

    Probably about 5/16 and thicker at the bottom. That's where I could improve, just that I hate that one last touch!!!! I was happy where it was.
