As promised, I've been working on an article for the e-magazine on building the scrap load for a gondola. Scrap load in a gon I've run into a snag though, I put all the stuff in the gon, added glue, and waited a few days. I checked it, it seemed like the glue was hardening, so I pulled the load out and spilled 50:50 white-glue-and-water all over my work bench, my clothes, even on my nice suede, fleece lined slippers :curse: :curse: :curse: :curse: :curse: So now the question is why did it work the first time, when I didn't know what I was doing, and not the second, when I (theorectially) DO know what I'm doing? Thinking back, I remember that when I built the first load I put stuff in the gon, added glue, waited for it to dry, then realized I didn't have enough and added a second layer and more glue. I guess is that, when I did the whole thing at once, the top layer of glue (in contact with the air) set up and formed a barrier that kept the glue lower down from setting. On top of that, I think I just used too much glue the second time. So the article (with pictures) is still in progress, and as my Daddy used to say "You live and learn, then you die and forget it all".
