I read about this in R/C Report (plank mag) and it kind of went in one ear and out the other but then I ran into the vendor at a 3d airplane event at our field and bought some of this stuff and I REALLY like it.

Its called Epo-Grip epoxy. They make 3 kinds, slow set, fast set and re-enforced. It mixes up like a paste and stays where you put it. I mean you can make a fillet on something vertical and it wont run. Need to fix something in a cockpit thats grey or olive drab? He scrapes some artist colored chalk into the blob and it will turn whatever color you want it to.

I bought some of the slow set and some of the fiber reenforced stuff. He was showing me at the fly in that you can mix up a blob of this, spray a bolt with wd40 and set it in there and when it dries unthread the bolt and you have a threaded hole thats strong enough that you wont tear the bolt out of the treads even if you use a claw hammer.

His number is 800-888-2467 though I dont see a web site on the bottle. It's not exactly bargin cheap but from what I've seen where we used it on my big Yak its worth it.

Never heard of Hysol, he said it came from the furnature industry.

I was told BVM repackaged Hysol as aeropoxy. It sounds like the same stuff as Epo-grip so I thought this might be the same deal. Hysol is made by LocTite. Hysol 9462 is what the RC Jet guys use and it takes about eight hours to dry. You can glue in an overhead former and the glue will stay where you put it until it dries. Plus if you are gluing in parts that need tweaking after they are all set up then the long drying time is handy. It comes in a cartridge and it helps to have the dispensing gun but the mixer nozzles are not necessary. Just mix with a stick like normal if you don't want to waste epoxy in the nozzle. You can reuse the nozzle if you take an air compressor to it and use some lacquer thinner. I get it from McMaster-Carr.

Nah this is in little screw cap bottles about the consistency of vasaline that you mix together. It has a 10 minute set and one that takes a couple of hours.

Here is the UK you can buy "ARALDITE", it comes in two tubes in B&Q, ocsts about £4-5 a time and has various settings times from 90 seconds to overnight. You can fit your wood into your scale machine with it and it wont budge, relatively cheap but great!
