How long does it normally take for this stuff to become non-tacky at room temp so that it can be handled. I tried it this time instead of the Devcon, but I no longer have the instructions. Thanks.

DON"T touch it for about 12 hours - even if it is not tacky you will probably leave fingerprints on it, the oil of your prints sticks to the coat and you will have to polish them off - I know you will be dying to grab hold of, and inspect them - after all your work it's not worth the risk. 24 hours is even better. pete

When I used Etex I would time it right ( just lucky I guess) and hang mine on the turner and spin all night ( blessed with a silent motor ). I would normally wait until I had at least 10-12 baits before doing this since 12 is the limit on my dryer. That way the next day I would'nt have to worry about tackiness.

Thanks guys. I guess it just takes a little longer than the Devcon. I was a little nervous about it but all was good this morning. Thanks again.
