    Default Tubular Gluing - How cold is too cold?

    I am wanting to get back into using tubulars, it is cold (35 degrees F daytime) and rainy. I would like to glue in the garage to keep the odors out of the house, what is too cold for gluing?

    ok, too cold outside, anybody have issues gluing inside? My furnace and water heater (natural gas) are still running as the warm weather is not here yet. The tube says flammable but what are people doing about it?

    One idea is to warm the tubes of glue in hot water; helps it become more fluid and easier to apply..

    As to the flammible issue, I just don't smoke while gluing..

    Gluing in the cold isn't a prob. it might double your flash times from a few mins. to a few more mins.! This ain't rocket science.

    Flammable LOL Yeah right, tell that to the frogs. Bwaaaahahahahaah. I'll trust you have the sense not to wave an open flame past the tube ;)

    i glue i the garage preferably with a door open and a fan blowing across me so i don't breathe too many fumes.

    if it is too cold, the glue doesn't seem to set up properly.

    it is best if the temps are at least in the mid 50's.

    i won't glue inside because of fumes and because it will make a mess. i like to use the concrete floor in my garage since i don't care if i leave a few spots of glue here and there when i leave the wheels while the base coats are drying, and when i am mounting the tires.

    Thanks for the help, now gluing in the basement. Fumes are hardly noticeable right by the tire, the family did not notice upstairs. There must not be a high concentration of solvents in the glue.
