    RE: Epo-Grip - Good stuff



    Looks good Jake.  Is it difficult to get  accurate/equal parts of 'A' & 'B' ?  Just curious because of the type of jar the parts are contained in.

    Not at all and its not critical. 



    Plus its like vasaline, stick it somewhere and it stays put w/o running.



    You can coat a bolt with WD40, put it in a hole the wet epoxy, when it dries its just like its tapped and its just as strong as anything else you might thread a bolt into.

    RE: Epo-Grip - Good stuff



    I only eye'd the mixing - I did have an increased drying time on the slow set stuff, but the other stuff worked fine. It's so thick I think it might be hard to dispense any other way.



    I can tell you I put the slow set to the test on a motor box repair that went in again extremely hard and while the motor box did seperate again slightly I was shocked to see how well it held together.
