Hey Guys

Heres a tip, I use 4oz. apple sauce cups for mixing and when done the epoxy comes right out. You can mix ,it seems, thinners, accetone and it does'nt bother it. Good for most small jobs.

Great idea. I also save the little cups that holds the icing that comes with Pillsbury ready-to-bake cinnamon rolls in a tube. Also, save my wife's empty face cream jars. I'm talking about the expensive stuff that comes in little, extra heavy-weight, spill-proof glass jars. They have a curved bottom. They are so perfect for the job that I wipe them out after each use with a paper towel and use them over and over again. Couldn't ask for a better mixing bowl for epoxy.

I bought a few hundred 5oz bathroom cups for a couple of dollars at my warehouse clug. They hold up well to D2T without melting. I just got some Etex and Dick Nite to try out so I'll see if they get too hot.

Look on eBay or do a google search for medicine cup. They hold one ounce and you get them in sleeve of 100. While you can save all kinds of household containers for doing this kind of work, they end up taking up a lot of room due to the multitude of sizes.

The medicine cups will stack 100 cups in less than a 2 x 2 area.

I always pick up a dozen extra to go salsa cups and lids when I go to my local Mexican take out restaurant. I asked the manager and she said it was fine.

And, once the epoxy sets in the bottom of the cup, I reuse it for another batch.
