    Epoxy will not bond to soda bottles. It takes a very special glue to bond with polypropylene plastic.

    Glad to see some failure. It is such critical part of experimentation. It can teach you so much.

    Kip, why is your vise still not bolted down?

  6. KipKay says:

    @justin. Yes, not all go as planned and then time runs out to make the necessary changes. As far as the vise, I have new garage cabinets and worktops and to be honest have not decided where I want to install it yet. I knew someone would notice. Thanks.
