Exclamation Better Living Through Chemistry...

The Tuffleye Acrylic jelly doesn't seem to have the volatile properties associated with Toluene...
It's contained, applied, and cured...all quickly and efficiently...I have not noticed any chemical warfare issues going on and I enjoy the process...
There is a post-cure residual surface tackyness that can be defeated with an alcohol swab rub down and an application of hard-as-nails to seal the issue...
...and besides all that...
IT'S FUN and I LIKE IT!

As far as Toluene is concerned...
It's sort'a like having your very own fly tyin' meth lab...NO WORRIES! (...NOT!)
