Roo Glue does NOT dry sufficiently in 90 minutes...and my negligence earlier didn't bite me

Guess I've gotten complacent about glue-up times with Titebond. I glued melamine to melamine (using Roo Glue) and thought clamping for 90 minutes would be long enough that I could do a little more work on the assembly. NOT! I ran it through the TS once to bevel an edge on the other end of the work piece, and the moment I finished, the two Roo Glue'd pieces fell apart. The glue was completely WET. I gotta start paying more attention.
Earlier, I forgot to raise the Delta mobile base wheel on the TS, before cutting the melamine. I didn't ruin it, but I was caught off guard by the sudden pivoting movement of the Unisaw and silently thanked the powers that be that there wasn't a whopper of a kickback. What ELSE could I have screwed up if I didn't adhere to a "no beer before operating equipment" policy?? I'm dangerous enough without alcohol!
Sigh...

FWIW, Roo Glue won't dry in 4 hours either. (I'm talking melamine-to-melamine here; melamine to mdf dries quickly) DAMHIKT. It will dry pretty well in approx 15 hours, however...

Perhaps the non porous surface prevents the glue from curing much like the bottle it comes from.

oh, definitely! I usually glue mdf to melamine (dado or rabbets) where one surface of mdf can absorb the moisture. The bottle says it's ok to use it for melamine to melamine also. Just takes FOREVER to dry. It's tenacious as hell, once dry, on mdf-to-melamine joints.
I tried prying the pieces apart this morning; no luck (which is actually "good" luck).
