Default Need some technical advice.

hi, i am furnace working some spheres, and i want to connect the with hollow tubing, in school we use loctite UV reacting glue. This will be a coldworking process, involving no heat at all, so I don't need to worry about COE differences. anything you can think of in terms of technical things i should be aware of?

As long as you dont ever intend on heating it back theres really not much to speak of. Most epoxies work well also.

using a uv light is better than the sun. i got some cheap led uv bulbs on ebay and put them in a shop light. im not sure if these are the exact ones, but here is a link.
i also bought a xmas tree foot pedal, so as im holding stuff together i dont have to move my hands to shut the light off, you can make sure everything is in the right place, then turn it on.
