A piece of foam pipe insulation is very useful for applying epoxy.

Where did you find such small foam tubes? I just installed a fuel line down the tunnel of a Volkswagen bug, and need to provide some "anti-rattle" material to the line. Your foam tube looks like just the right size!

TIA

I bought that pipe foam insulation from an ironmonger. You can find it:

I think that they made from same material.

Re-purposing! I'm a fan of that. Would probably form a nice neat fillet too.

I save small plastic lids to use as epoxy mixing palettes. The ones shown below are from potato-chip tubes.

Leftover cured epoxy peels-off easily. I like to mix epoxy with a dowel. Rotating and rolling the dowel while mixing helps to mix more completely. A round wooden toothpick and the small plastic lid are great for mixing small batches.

Plastic covers are good idea Roddie. Thanks for this tip.

I use bamboo skewers for mixing.

Levent,

The stuff you linked is 3/4" ID, and about 1-1/2" OD. The stuff in your fingers looks to be about 1" OD, and 3/8" ID...unless you are holding it with a Thoe! Laughing

You are right Very Happy It is 5/8 x 5/16 ins. However I couldn't find it in any website.

Perhaps you want to try nearest size:
