The open time according to Old Brown themselves is 30 minutes, so clamp time would be longer. It would also depend on stress or no stress. I was told to allow 12 hours of clamping time to ensure the joint was strong, but that s likely just being cautious. It s like PVA, you can create a strong rub joint without clamps, if you want, but I don t do it.

I’m speaking from years of experience. You? Actually, your second sentence shows there is hope for you :) Clamp time and time to support a load are two different things. I build dozens of projects per month for my business and don’t have time for classroom rules about clamp time. If it holds, it’s done.
