No mine finished

Most of my day I was trying to build a mine for the HO layout. It is metal but you are to put it together with glue. I used glue for metal. It said so on the bottle. You have to wait an hour for it to set. With plastic it is a 30 second wait, useing another type of glue. As I tried to put all the pieces together they would fall apart. I gave up and looked at the other mine I had that was metal but was to be put together with solder. I have never used solder before . I didn't have the correct solder, so I put that mine away. I returned to the first one. I am stubborn. I have now the individual pieces glued. Will try again tomorrow .
While I labored up stairs men were putting in a new furnace. The furnace works and is very quiet.
Time to stop for now and call my daughter.

Perhaps you should try talking to the mine to get results.

"Mine, please stay together or I will have to go back to the other mine."
or
"You know, when I was your age, I did not have glue to hold myself together, I had to use good old dirt!"

or maybe

"If you do not get yourself together (no pun intended) I will have to send you back to where you came from and get a new one that does not require so much effort on my part!"

Good luck!
