It's been a while since I've used HOK products but with most good products you can cut and buff after about 16 hours at 70 degrees F. However fluctuations in temperature and the speed of the hardener can greatly effect the hardening speed.

Depending on the situation, I've sanded and buffed as soon as 2 hours, or as late as 3 weeks.
I prefer next day.
