I’m working on my V Drum sander project, and I am at the point to fill my pvc pipe with the circle cutout on the center rod. The cutouts are just a tad bit too small. Since I need to epoxy them in, I’m not too worried about it, I’m hoping it will fill nicely (I HOPE!)
Here’s my main question. I’ve got a quart of fiberglass resin sitting around from my cyclone project. I almost NEVER use fiberglass, and I was thinking that the liquid fiberglass would work nicely for thee reasons.
1) I have it, and it’s not going anywhere.
2) I may be able to use some of the leftover cloth to fill in between the cutouts and the pipe.
2), it will flow and fill, and if I tip the drum on end, hopefully it won’t settle in one place and unbalance the drum. It will fill to the top (hopefully).
But fiberglass can be brittle. Would this be a problem? It WILL be inside the pvc pipe.
