    had to dig it off with a putty knife... I knew what acetone would have done to whats left of the bottom of my boots lololol
    The cure? not be so fixated on what I was doing and to watch where I was stepping hehehe I knew it was there because I had just had a few words to the air over the epoxy leaking out the bottom of the board through the tape.....

    Just an FYI tape does not hold epoxy in. Or out for that matter.
    It could be worse You could be on fire.

    May be more difficult than the dogs present, but it sure is a lot more pleasant... First hand knowledge as I've got 2 gift givers here

    FWIW, Denatured alcohol will soften/remove most uncured epoxies.
