Where can I purchase this epoxy? How long does it take to set? How long does it take to dry to a hard finish or till you can add more layers if desired?

Devcon Two Ton 30 minute epoxy is carried by Ace hardware stores. You can buy it online from several sources including Wood Carving Tools - Texas - The Old Texas Woodcarvers Shop, Tools, Books, Classes. It's brushable for about 4-5 minutes after mixing and it becomes sag-proof in 45 minutes at room temps. Like most epoxies, it reaches 90% cure in 24 hours. It's thicker than most epoxies used for lure topcoating so one coat is sufficient on bass baits. It can be cut with a few drops of lacquer thinner to extend the brush time but is strongest when used "as-is". Measured properly and mixed well, it is one of the simplest and least failure prone topcoats.

I checked Lowes, Home Depot they did not have it. but a local OSH had it. Just check stores like that around your area you will find it.

ACE Hardware does not carry it. I went on Sunday and they said none of their stores carry the 30 minute Dev2ton. All they have is the 5 minute stuff.

I think Devcon was purchased by the company whose epoxy replaced it in many stores. I like to order mine online because I can find it in a 9 oz bottle set, which is more cost efficient.

You can go online to grainger.com and order it. They have it in two sizes. One size is just like the epoxy you get in the stores with the plunger in the tubes. The other size is larger but requires a caulk gun or a dispenser made for the larger tubes. You can find all of that on grainger.com. Piece of advice if you order the larger tubes from granger go to Mcmastercarr.com to get the dispenser/caulk gun. Its much cheaper then the one on grainger.

If you'll got to Devcon's home page you can do a search by zip code to see where the closest place to puchase it is to your location.
