I buy my 5 minute epoxy from the automotive section at walmart. Look in the aisle with the bondo/paints for permatex "permaoxy". $3? or so.

I've found the locktite epoxy terrible, it doesn't come out even and has different size air bubbles in the tubes. Hard to cap too.

Other epoxies are in the paint section of lowes or home depot for a decent price.

Just a quick tip. I use the bottom of a 12 oz soda can to mix the epoxy. Aluminum does not absorb any chemicals and the can is still recycle able as long as the upc is intact

Makes a nice lil cup for mixing "just enough".

Our local McDonalds has pumps for ketchup and BBQ sauce and these neat little plastic 1-ounce cups. The stack of cups always seems a bit shorter after I go through the line
