When gunking on a socket, first, the wood block is sealed and the distal end of the socket is roughened. The socket is first tacked in place using a small amount of resin. The alignment is then rechecked before moving on. A new mixture of soc-a-floc and resin is mixed until it is the consistency of thick peanut butter. This mixture is catalyzed and then and the base of the socket is gunked with the mixture. After this mixture has set, the bench alignment can be checked for strength to ensure patient safety.
