I am getting my etex curing wheel up and running.

How long do you guys run the wheel for curing?

I'd guestimate around 2 hrs, it depends on temperature. Save the unused epoxy while the baits cure and poke that to see how it's going. If there's any doubt, keep those wheels a-rolling.

I let my wheel turn all night. The Etex is still slightly tacky in the morning when I turn the wheel off. I don't really handle it until 24hrs have passed. I don't know the exact cure time. It probably varies, depending on temperature.
Go to the Envirotex website, and email Hilary Stephens there. She's their tech person, and can answer any questions you have.

I have done as BEZYB with Etex but just to be safe than sorry I turned all nite as Mark. Now that I'm using DN's I only turn 4-5 hrs and they're fine.
