thanks DuckNut, what about ways to get it to the joint? i have tried a few different ways but it is very sloppy. I am able to get a good angle, I just waste a lot in the process and make a mess. I have heard of using a ziploc bag with a funnel on the end but it didnt work very well. Any ideas
Cut the pipe on various angles to suit your corners. A 30 degree cut will get you into most corners. I also use a dremel with a wand attached and that little sander headed thing (same size as the pipe) and can sand it down if needed. Corners are not fun.
I have also used mixing stix with the rounded ends. Bought them from Pearl crafts. Have never used, but a tongue depresser is basically the same thing.
I bought a bunch of sandwich bags and I used cheap plastic cups, then mixed up my epoxy and filler to the right consistance (should be thick like peanut butter or else it will sag and run).
Once it is mixed, turn the cup over inside the ziploc bag and crush the cup to squeeze out the putty into the bag. Push it down into one of the corners and then get as much air out as you can and twist the bag right above the putty. I used a zip tie at this point.
Then cut the tip off the bag and go to work. to make a smoothed radius I used oversized popsicle sticks from walmarts craft section which worked good to mix stuff up too.
I use scrapped DVDs custom cut to fit the profile of the area so waste is channeled back into the seam. Mix up your thickened epoxy and put it into a plastic drywall tray and use a drywall plastic spreader to place it into the chine as well as you can. Profile it with your custom made DVD template and lay wet out glass tape into the seam. Work wet on wet for the best in strength and labor savings. You will be surprised at how much faster it is.
I had to figure out what my fillet radius needed to be
based on the type fiberglass to be used to cover the joint.
So I took a section of 'glass and placed it in a hard 90° bend,
and let it form it's own radius and measured the result.
3/4 inch radius to produce a smooth fiberglass layup with
6 ounce tooling cloth. Then from the top of a plastic jar
made a tool for applying a smooth fillet and overspread cleanup.
