Does anyone have a material recommendation for applying epoxy to gaps and cracks?
I am making these silly fancy pencil holders, joining them along the grain w/ rip-cut miters, alla Wood Whisperer’s fancy pencil holder, except different. Anyhow, the table saws I TRIED using had some problems with their inserts and the tricky cuts came out a bit less than perfect. After gluing them I realized there was a reason I had initially ripped them at the size I did before—to make sure I still had wood to cut to get those miters perfect. Oh, well, since I don’t do this work at MY shop, time was limited and I forgot about that fact, deciding to join them anyway. Well, there ARE gaps, because the VERY SMALL change in level from the table surface to the insert surface changed a bit of the angle and… you get the point.
Now I will try to apply epoxy before in the time before I am allowed to use the power tools, and leave drying up while cutting other parts. So, I was wondering:
YOU GUYS HELPED ME WITH SOME EPOXY FIX A FEW MONTHS AGO. WHAT DO YOU USE TO APPLY/PUSH EPOXY INTO VERY SMALL, LONG GAPS? VERY THIN WIRE? WHAT KIND OF WIRE IS GOOD FOR THIS, DOES IT HAVE A NAME?
I do plan to contain the epoxy w/ tape (in fact, I might get frog tape to try and keep it from the surfaces to be finished.
Let me know what you think. THANKS!
