    Jim the only place that I've found so far is AFGD Glass Center at 120 Railway St. in Kingston. You need to ask for Methylene Chloride and bring your own small glass bottle w/lid like a small juice bottle. MC is not nice stuff and and the glass place will probably give you the MDS sheet with the stuff as well. Also if you can get a syringe to apply the MC with you will find it much easier to work with.

    they have weld-on at homedepo last time i looked in their plastics sections, leading edge can probably order it in for u

    they usually come with applicator brush and all so its good deal
    when it cures its safe for fish.. but avoid working in a non-ventilated room for obvious reasons...

    i didn't order a LTA, that was jeff

    i wanted bangai and zoos and mantis

    Jim: Depends on how cold it is, I find it doesn't evaporate as quickly in the winter as compared to the summer in my workshop that isn't heated during the winter months.

    The house is going slow, all this rain has really put the time table back by a couple of weeks. Of course its going to rain again tomorrow which is really starting to take a toll on my sanity. But if all goes well after this it should be closed in and the roof shingled by mid November then it can rain all it wants.

    I haven't decided if I going to set up the old tank or not. If we still have any money (or credit for that matter) I'd like to build my dream tank of a 60x60x30 plywood/glass inwall with a dedicated fish room behind it. But thats still along way off for now.

    Will: It would be great if they did have weldon at the Kingston HD, do you remember where in the store you saw it?
