I’m facing making a quantity of epoxy/wood flour for filling some deep defects in reclaimed fir.

I’m wondering if chips off the jointer, thrashed into submission by one of these, would make it fine enough.

I’m interested in first hand experience, not theory. I’ve already got my theory.

Thanks kindly,

I’ve use a blender before, which worked well enough for me, but your opinion may differ. I’ve never used a coffee grinder so I won’t delve into theory.

I have no experience, no real theory,
Have you looked into “SculptWood Epoxy Putty” from Woodcraft
on page 2H of their latest catalog?

my coffee grinder works great for shellac flakes, turns them into dust.

Have your say...
