Safety of Fittings

Unread postAuthor: TheTrooper » Sun Jan 13, 2008 2:03 am

Okay, so i was gluing together my new pneumatic (which is now done, will post soon) when i accidently glued a 45* angle fitting on backwards(the side without primer) I immediately twisted off with a vice but my question is: Is is still safe to re-glue this fitting because of the glue residue left on it before?

Check the dry fit of the pipe into the fitting. It should bottom with a moderate amount of applied force. If it does not, you can carefully sand away the excess thickness created by the cement left on the parts.

ya on most cementing guides and FAQs it says "if the glue hardens reaply on both the pipe and the fitting" so i'm guesing there would be no harm in using it.
