Actually,according to System 3's Epoxy Book,it is better to err on the
short side WRT hardener. They say that there is more tolerance to less
hardener than to too much hardener. One thing to try is an elevated
temperature,as colder temps really slows down curing. Try putting it in a
large box,along with a string of X-mas lights,the ones with bigger
bulbs,not those tiny things.If that does not work,then you have to either
trash the tube,or attempt to remove the uncured mess.That seems like it
would be a lot of work with questionable results.
Lesson learned(I hope);always measure.
