PL3 question

How much time does it take for PL3 to cure before I can remove the weight?

I wait 8 hours when it’s 60 degrees or colder outside. Removing the weights can probably happen after a few hours I just wouldn’t try to pick up the box or move much around. Push on the pl and see if it hardened if it’s hard your good to go.

If there's been some additional form of ensuring panels staying put / positioned / in contact as intended,
not just weights or clamps

maybe like right away . . .
we've got stuff to build,

that stuff will expand, seal and adhere wherever it can

There’s been some pretty smart guys chiming in before me with lots more experience than I have, but I treat things differently depending on what part of the build I’m doing. If I’m going to be moving the box or flipping it over I do the full 24 hrs like it says on the label. If I’m not stressing the joint or moving the box (like just adding a piece to the same panel) I might do like 6-8 hrs, like glue and clamp a piece in the morning then add another after work. Then again, I don’t use Kregs or brads, so I’m really relying on those clamps.

That exactly what I do glue before work then once I get home continue. Better off safe then sorry. I did that today on a current 21” driver build.

Not for me a box build for Wayne that’s in Madison Wisconsin. I’m building two 11 cubic ft boxes tuned at 17hz using the LaVoce 21” drivers. Then going to EQ his room. Using Dirac live for his mains and another mini dsp Dirac live for his subs. I’ll get a thread going today on it. Getting paid for it... trying to make my car fast...

always release the pressure when in a caulk gun

have a place to put the gun where the tip will drip - and it will

a roll of 2" package tape nearby will let you seal that cut end very tightly
and you should do it , even if for just a brief, like 5 minute pause, in the action end

get a box of latex disposable gloves- that stuff will invade your skin
a good pumice handcleaner will help get most of it off

the gloves are good for when you want to groom the fillet

as I pidtured above, a good fat 3/8" bead will squish to the full width of the surfacesand do it's thing.

If your project is big and requires you to put the gun down a few times, get a spare bucket and angle it in there. I find its much nicer to have to a secure place that will contain the PL3 without it getting anywhere, ESPECIALLY the floor where it inevitable gets on someones shoe.

I avoid pl3. Wood glue for glue. Sealant to seal. Sorry, not very helpful for the OP question I guess.
