I'm working on another sump this evening, using Glad Baggie twist ties that have been stripped to allow me to insert bare wire in the joint. So far, 3 sides are glued.

I decided to review this thread since I've never used pins before, and I noticed you don't even have them completely inserted to support the entire material in your pictures. They look like they are in about 1/16th or 1/8th of an inch. I didn't notice that before.

When I was preparing my joint to be glued, I immediately realized if the wire went too far out the other side (inside the sump), the glue would wick along the wire, so I had it even with the inner edge. I'm using 1/4" acrylic, and the wire is 1/4" in the joint. Hope that makes sense.

I noticed you talked about leaving it for four hours to bond, but my work area doesn't really work that well for me. I usually have one side I work from and need to rotate my project to put that next joint in front of me.

I can't wait to see how clear these seams will be after this!
