It's a small company (though it's a subsidiary of a much larger mother company), we're about 10 people in all - some days it's busy, some days it's dead. At the moment for example we're waiting for a delivery of raw materials so there's no production in the plant, and if nothing is being manufactured then there's nothing to test. Of course I have other things to do but there's little sense of urgency and noone's riding my ass about it so I'm enjoying it while I can :)

You're awesome jack.

But really, why wouldn't you want to use epoxy to fix the thing? It's easy, clean, strong.

Epoxy can take some getting used to, it needs to be combined and can become a goopy mess pretty easily. I can't blame him for wanting to avoid it if possible.

Hovever, the pros of having an almost unbreakable seal outweigh the set-up time and any mess it creates.

I have no idea why you dont just mix up a bach of epoxy and smear it around the place thats leaking even though you hate it.

Epoxy is your friend. Just put two equal size globs on a paper towel, mix them with a toothpick, and apply it with said toothpick. Make a clean seal, you can sand it and paint it later and you'd never know it was there.
