How long do you let it sit before you consider it dry? The first time I used it it worked like a dream, but now for the life of me I cant get it to dry?!? I dont know what I did this time vs. last time. Any advice?

I agree, 24 hours to be really sure. Sometimes less if the weather is cooler and less humid. Also faster when I have a fan in the room. Either way, give it some time, and whatever you're gluing on isn't going anywhere!

It takes 24 hrs. to set. I also want to add I use ali clips to hold whatever I am gluing with E6000 in place for a few minutes so that it will hold while it's drying. It doesn't bond instantly. I use it for everything though. It works wonders!!

I returned my unopened E6000 to the store because I wasn't liking all the warnings on it! Should those be disregarded?

I tried out E6000 for a few things and I just can't get over the smell. Even months later I can still smell the stink of it on the things I made. yuck. If its something small that is being attached I use a super glue - Zap-a-Gap, otherwise I turn up the glue gun to high and hope it sticks.

I'm the same way about some of the products I use. When I worked with suede strips, I remember I used to really shrink up my nose at the smell.

I'm loving the adhesion E6000 offers, but I can't stop it from running out the end of the tube when I take the cap off

I hesitate to use E6000 for the same reason, especially my dd use to put everything in her mouth....
