Wonder if we're both thinking of the resorcinol version, which was my dad's
favorite precisely because of the long open time.
The plastic resin glue gives a great pot life figure.
Though the figure for the resorcinaol seems rather longer than my
Not quite. "Resorcinol" glue is either resorcinol-formaldehyde or
phenol-resorcinol-formaldehyde and is rated by the Forest Products
Laboratories (major research institution) to be "structural fully
exterior", while they rate urea-formaldehyde as "structural interior". I
don't recall which formulation Weldwood uses in their "resorcinol"
glue--been a long time but I seem to recall phenol listed on the label, in
any case it's a quite different product from their "plastic resin" glue.
Note that "Weldwood" is a DAP brand name that covers at least as broad a
range of adhesives as "Loctite".

The responses you're getting saying 15-20min seems odd. DJM is fond of using
"plastic resin glue" when he needs very long open times.
Gives the impression it would be "hours".
This site: http://www.jeffgreefwoodworking.com/commerce/glue/ gives the
"hours" impression (albeit at cooler temps) too.
