Black Epoxy for Inlays

I routed out the cavities for the delicate inlays with a hand-held Dremel, and I must say it looked like rats had chewed out the wood! I used this epoxy to glue the inlays in and by the time I had sanded them level, and sprayed on the clear-coat, I literally could not see any ragged edges.

Great product.

It dries quickly, and it's very stout. It works really well for fixing stripped threads on softer guitars and repairing damages.

good stuff

I like this epoxy.The slow set time is a real plus because it don't force me to hurry with the application & mutiple inlays can be set at the same time. I got the black & used it on a dark fretboard for inlays & it blends in real well.It also works well as a filler for dings or flaws.Doesn't seem to shrink as it cures.

Not so sure for bone....

I bought the fast setting clear epoxy for joining bone to oud bridges. And I have to say, I think I would get more strength with Elmers kiddie glue. I've tried many types of joins for bone and none work. Maybe this works good for wood on wood, but that's why I have hyde and wood glues.

Easy Peasy

Easy to mix and work with. Don't over do it,... just use what you need and don't glob it all over or else you have a lot more material to sand/file down once it sets up.

This stuff is great. It holds very well and looks beautiful. Do be careful in the mixing. A definite must have.

slow setting black

Its great for pretty much anything, and it bonds very strong. I really like having the 90 minutes of working time with it. Its about as black as anyone could ask for. The only thing I don't like its smell *haha*, but I can deal with that for this great of quality!

Black Epoxy

I am no great inlay artist so I found the black epoxy to be a great help in filling in the gaps around my work. I would have preferred that it come with instructions for a first-timer.

As Strong As Cement

This stuff holds up very well, the black epoxy is very useful for covering mistakes in ebony.

This epoxy doesn't set up as hard as some others I have used. After even, thorough mixing, applying, and a couple of days of set up, it still feels a little spongy.
