    UV resin Cures and Doesn't cure

    I seem to be the master of not being able to make UV resins cure, Bondic was OK ,the Loon Thin and Loon Thick is the one I'm using now . First time trying I found my batteries were weak in torch , second attempt everything cured perfectly ( 4 A.M. ) , later that day using the same things the same way and even changing batteries I can't get either one in small or large doses to cure . Only thing I can think of is a small amount of sunlight shining in caused the torch not to be as bright , Even took outside to cure in sun nothing cured . I believe that 30 seconds of UV blast is more than enough time and the torch is a Clear Cure Goo lamp . Thanks for the help, I'm going crazy here !! Tommy
