pot time refers to the time that the chemically created heat gels the mixture, there has to a contained amount to trigger this, mixing your resin and then pouring it into a low tray can allow this heat to escape and slow the time.. working time will still allow you to work the resin about.. also remember you do not have to mix the ENTIRE amount of resin needed for the project at one time, the working time lets you mix smaller amounts and work across the project in stages.. as long is everything is still "wet" more resin can be added and it will all cure as one unit.. Those pita brooklyn hull halfs take around four batches of resin and about 1.5 hrs of lay-up time...(ps those fake plastic credit cards you get in the mail make great spreaders, they flex and have rounded corners so they don't snag the clothe) just remember complete mixing of parts A+B has to take place.. mix the crap out of it..
