The tension on the control horns is no where near those numbers either. The manual says use 5 min epoxy and it works fine for thousands of people that used it there.
Again, you won't be disappointed with Hysol. It's good to mix a bit up and see how it mixes/dries reacts anyway before your other project. I'd just hate to see people recommending it for an application that doesn't really need it. You have to order it since you can't just grab a pack at the LHS (any I know of anyway). You have to wait a day for it to dry. It costs $15 + shipping for every pack. So yeah, if you have some go right ahead if you feel the need. I used epoxy regardless even though I have it.
OK... enough... back to your regularly scheduled show now
