Not bad.....

but West is only a bit more expensive....

so not sure if I would go for it.

There are other cheap epoxies around.

Sicomin Resin from Matrix is brilliant stuff - I use it by preference:

Not sure on costs.....but don't think it is more expensive than West.

SP resins are available cheaper somewhere.....but can't remember where at moment.

I have also used some French Resin......which was very fast.....called ???-Connexions which used to be available from Dave Cockwell's yard in Bristol. Don't know if he still does it from down in Falmouth....although suspect he does. This was nice and cheap although you had to buy 5Kg at a time.
