Ptex and base repair question
OK, so I was helping a buddy of mine with his gear. I wanted to fill a small gouge against the edge. After cleaning it out with a small brass brush, I filled it up with new Ptex candles I just picked up. I let it cool for about 20 min or so and went back and scraped it. It looked horrible, crumbly
. So I dug it back out, re-cleaned it up and reapplied it. A little better, but still somewhat crappy. I've done this a few times before and never had this problem. Any suggestions? Crappy ptex perhaps?
To clarify how I did it, I took a small torch and lit the end of the stick. I let it burn until it dripped pretty steady and proceeded to fill the gouge. After cooling for 20 min, I scraped it.
