Re: 50F and chance of rai

As you will have read, the usual rule of thumb is that epoxy slows down by half with each 10 degree drop in temperature, but that's once you get it spread. The other low-temp problem is that it becomes more viscous which makes it harder to wet out the glass and wood. So point one of your lamps at the epoxy jugs. I would try to get the wood up to 60 and the goop to 70 or higher. That heating should also lower the humidity in your workspace. After the glassing session it does not really matter how cool it gets if you're patient. If MAS say it's good for high humidity, I believe 'em.
