Excellent product

This epoxy (the Slow setting black) was the perfect color for inlaying on my StewMac ebony fingerboard.

It set up slow enough that I was able to mix one batch large enough to glue in all 13 inlays, and still be able to move the inlays into their final position. The consistency of the glue was easy to work with, and filled all "gaps" easily. Once it was sanded down, it's virtually invisible.

Highly recommended!

Black Epoxy

I have not used this on any of my guitars yet but I did have to use some of it around the house the first day it arrived and it works really well on other plastics.

Strong bonding stuff!

I ordered the slow setting clear epoxy to hold a couple carbon fiber rods in place in a guitar neck, and the stuff works great. It has a viscosity similar to that of honey or syrup, so it was easily spread to cover the entire cavity without flowing back to one end or the other.

A word of advice though... Be sure to use in WELL VENTILATED areas!!! the resin was not so bad but the hardener is one of the most foul smelling chemicals I've ever came across. It does dry scent free though :)

StewMac Epoxy

I've used this product for five years with excellent results. I like the slow setting time which allows for proper alignment of parts for clamping. I haven't noticed any shrinkage with it and it never has de-laminated.

Can cover up mistakes

I bought this epoxy so I could glue in the inlays I made for my ebony finger board. Well, this was my first time doing it and i was a little careless and my hands slipped making the cavity much larger than it needed to be. I glued in the inlay and after the epoxy dried and the inlay was sanded flush the mistake isn't even noticeable. (I used the slow setting black by the way)

Very handy

I use the fast setting mix for smaller jobs and the slower set for work requiring just a little more time to place the materials and set in place . Easy to use .

Great product

I have used many epoxies over the years. From the smallest of jobs to installing sledge hammer handles and this is some of the best I've used.
