Question
Small quantities of epoxy?

For awhile now I've been thinking about trying my hand at making lost-foam glass fuses for Slipsos and such, but I keep running into this issue that's called "epoxy is really expensive". All I have on hand is 5-minute stuff that's obviously no good for this purpose. It's easy enough to find big jugs of the "right stuff", but I don't have $50+ to drop on a barrel of resin when I'm only likely to be using like three ounces over the next several years.

Does anyone sell good composite-fabrication epoxy (low viscosity, slow set/cure time etc.) in much smaller quantities (and accordingly lower prices)? I'm thinking like four ounces of resin, plus hardener.

Try US Composites. OK resin at OK price.

The 3:1 ratio is good for general purpose stuff. Get some graduated mixing cups or a scale that reads to .01 grams to get the mix right.
