I am new to Marine Tex, as I refuse to buy another pound of Devcon, when the company refused any help replacing harder that had gone bad. Are there any here clean up the top lines of the stock immediately while it is still very soft, or give it set up time. I have seen bedding jobs that the bedding looks very nice where it meets the action. I have been using a q- tip, and it looks satisfactory, I'm ready to kick it up a notch as I know there are many ideas here on the proper way. I use q tips because a buddy visited Kenny Jarretts shop, and that was his tecnique.
