    Besides picking at it like a tweeker? I don't really care much for running PVC conduit, only 'cause when the glue gets on your hands and dries, the only way I know to get it off is to pick at it, and some skin always comes along with it, or just wait until that layer of skin is sloughed off. Anyway, my crew is running a big ass ductbank for over a mile, so there's gonna be plenty of PVC glue, everywhere. Anyone know a good solvent to get dried PVC glue off? Preferably one that doesnt sting like a mofo when you get it into the million little tiny cuts you get when wiring cages together?

    I got Imron on my hands once. Only way it comes off is it grows out.
