i was having trouble with e6000 until I started placing a small amount on each piece to be joined, let it get tacky (sometimes 10 minutes) then join together. It takes at least 24 hours to cure but I’ve not had any trouble in the 42 degrees Celsius & humidity that we get here. I also tried to separate a piece I no longer liked from a bail & couldn’t. Hope that helps
ps just realised how old the original post was, so hopefully you have it sorted by now!
