spackle cold temperatures


I'm in the middle of a garage project and have to spackle and fill joints this weekend. I won't have access to a portable heater like I planned. The temperature is suppose to be around 40 for the next week and the spackle will take forever to dry at that temperature. What are my options?? I was thinking a curing spackle. thanks

yea, the setting sype may be OK. I have never used it but I think in should be fine. Different bags are different set times from like 20 mins to 5 hours. Try and get a heater regardless, you will be more comfortable. I heard Lowes has kero heaters on sale right now.

Go to your local rental place and rent a couple of space heaters...even Ace Hardware has a rental section in my small central Texas town.
