  • Stupid PVC Glue

    I have ruined another perfectly good pair of blue jeans with that stupid purple pvc glue and primer. I have ruined I don't know how many pairs of jeans with that stuff. Does any one have an idea of how to prevent it from setting into your clothes?

    You have two choices:
    1. Don't put it on your clothes.
    2. Work in the nude.

                    The bad part was waking up nude in a phone booth with 3 dead chickens, a one armed homeless man named Zeb, two empty jars of Peanut butter, and one very dirty carrot

                      If you have to put the glue in your lap, wear an apron. Now don't bother me anymore, I'll be partying with Gene!

                        Hey Dan,

                        Try McMaster Carr I got my last coveralls ( crawl suit ) from them. I'm positive they'll have something to fit you. Not sure how to purchase from them, got mine thru a friend who had a connection for a deep discount.

                        Mine is plenty big and heavy duty.

                        wookie

                          Since you have a pair of clothes that are "damaged" by the glue, keep them where you know where they are and put them on next time you work with the stuff, and if you get some more on them you will not be concerned, the stuff will break up some when washing so it is not a big hard spot.

                          I have boots, and some "old clothes" for dirty jobs,

                          and even try to keep a set for welding in so I do not burn up good clothes.

                          a job apron may be appropriate in a quick job, I have leather aprons for welding, cotton white for butchering, and denim one when in the wood shop, and they catch most of the crud.

                            As stated, dress for the mess! I like buying coveralls slightly bigger so they slip over the clothes I am already wearing. If you can get away with it, for PVC DWV, use clear glue and clear primer.
