    These guy are the only ones I found in Canada that sell the Stickfast stabilizing supplies in Canada. This is the resin for stabilizing your own handle materials if you want to give it a try.
    The resin is not listed on their website but they do stock it. You will have to email or call them and they'll help you out. Great guys to deal with also.

    Thanks Frank. I will give Tim a call. Hopefully he's got some stock to ship.

    I contacted them early last week and I was told that they are waiting on a delayed order, but they would let me know when they received it.

    Cool I think I'll swing by and pick up a quart to test it out.

    The fellow I spoke to (Larry) said they only have 1 US gallon jugs @ $99.95. Maybe give them a call first: 416-241-8654

    It's too bad there we could organize buying pools. Anyone in the Edmonton area want to buy a 1/2 gallon from me for $50? I don't need a gallon, but it can be catalyzed in smaller amounts so it should last a long time.

    Thanks for the heads up Dan. Maybe the order they are waiting on are the quarts, I'll give them a shout to see what's up.

    Hey guys, have you tried this resin out yet? I got a gallon of it and I can't get it to harden. Any feedback would be appreciated!

    I have used it. Worked great. What ratio of hardener to resin are you using and what curing temperature? I found that too hot or too cool and it didn't set. I think the sweet spot is around 90 degrees C.

    @Grouch uses it too.

    I just added the whole bottle of hardener to the gallon like instructed. I was skeptical of what was happening so I threw another thermometer into my oven and found out my even heat kiln is off my 75 degrees. The resin hardened once I turned my oven up to 275F my which reads 200f on my mechanical thermometer.

    Home ovens either full size or toaster are notorious for having inaccurate gauges. I resorted to drawing a line on the toaster oven dial background to be sure the temperature needed is always reached.

    John, I'm talking about my actual kiln. It's not even a year old so it's kinda making me mad.

    If will have to read through that post, I find my even heat overshoots up to 50F when temperature starts above 70F for tempering.

    Have not tried it out for curing resin yet
