We're starting a new Tuesday tradition at Sail22.com...Sail22 Tips & Tricks where we'll share with our readers about some of the how-tos to make your life easier.
So, here it goes, in our first Sail22 Tips & Tricks post we want to introduce you to a favorite product we often use in the Sail22 Speed Barn by West System called Six10 Epoxy Adhesive. The boys and girls up at West System up in Bay City, MI have made using their epoxy much easier. The simple concept that we have seen from Plexis and other companies with the fancy mixing tip has been incorporated by West System for everyone's all important boat building needs. All you need is a tube of West System's Six10 Epoxy and a basic caulk gun. Screw on the tip and you are good to go. The tube is pre-measured to dispense exactly the right amounts of each part into the tip and mix it all together. If you have a bigger project like putting a hull-deck seam together this is your best option. The mixing tip allows you to squirt the thickened epoxy right were you need it. If you have a little project that only requires a small amount of epoxy, there is no longer a need to pull out the boat building kit anymore! Just use West System's Six10 Epoxy without the mixing tip and squeeze out your desired amount into a mixing cup. Once again, the tube is super smart and gives you the correct portions of each of the two parts to make a great thickened epoxy ready for anything. Just mix it up with a stir stick and you are ready to go!
