Absolutely, Jess helped me, I bought some from amazon, I put too much in though and it took about 4 hours to set :p

I go from one extreme to another lol

Can honestly say it really helped me and works, I'm assuming it's some kind of acid that counter balances/slows the alkaline solution? I was going to try the extratime or the other acid powder foodgrade stuff (can't remember what it's called)

So whats that ‘extra time’ stuff ? Cream of tartar at 30 x the cost?

It definitely works. I was using it during the heatwave. Larry had a problem with his mix going off so told him to bung some in but he overdid it lol! My bad!
Heard it many times but never believed it lol.

I like halftime, get about a 1.15 set on it. Also lovely for bonding, 2 sachets to a bag of bonding it's workable for about 15 minutes then flash sets and is ready to skim about 5 minutes later, just be quick though as when it goes it goes in about 20 seconds
