Thread: Thread sealer.
A bit late to chime in, but normally for this job i use epoxy. My vacuum station is all sealed with epoxy, so is my compressor and mist system. If i am in doubt that will have to unscrew it later, i use the 2euro epoxy from a chinese shop. Which works well. if propane or oil is involved, i use expensive epoxy.
As a friend said once- " all you need is one hand distance aways from you, just look around, you have it"

Also i think the double syringe item shown will mix the epoxy in the nozzle so no air entrainment ?

That friend wasn't Eric Cantona, was it..?
Those double syringes are cool, but mixing the resin/hardener/colour paste requires odd quantities and furthermore they need measuring out by weight, ie. 10g of resin + 0.5g + 5g hardener. Might be worth trying a syringe to dispense into the more detailed parts, although I have a feeling that the mixture will be a little too viscous... On the smaller stuff I'm currently over-pouring and then sanding back the excess before polishing which gives a nice flush finish, but I do like the way that the epoxy 'sags' into the pockets on larger designs - you get some nice reflections.
