Default RE: which epoxy

West Systems is known to be one of the best. However, I have found one that is just the same but is less popular, and is alot cheaper. It is called Aero-Marine epoxy systems. Go to this website and check out his prices in regular adhesive and laminating epoxy in pump bottles. It is great for glassing.
I just used Aero-Marine on a plane I am building and it sets up slower than regular 30 min, but penetrates better, has a much higher tensile strength, and seems to flex a little better for vibration, it won't crack or break. It is used alot for gluing golf club heads to their shafts.

I'd recommend Aeropoxy from PTM&W for room temp wet layup.
