    Home Made Body Filler / epoxy mixing pad

    I found myself last week doing some epoxy mixing, I usually just use scrap cardboard laying around and thought it might be a good idea to come up with a better idea.



    Very simple and if one does a lot of mixing this should fit the bill.

    I think I have an even better way that is free and good recycling.

    I use old tool catalogues. Currently I am using an MSC catalogue, at well over 1000 pages it will last me a long time.
    I cut the catalogue into a more managable size on the bandsaw, leaving the spine. Magazine glossy paper is waterproof enough to mix up epoxy or filler and it won't soak through. After you are done you just tear off the page and throw it in the bin.

    My first job at 18 was as an auto body helper. MY boss had a couple pieces of glass from old jobs about 12x12. He mixed body filler on those. The two advantages doing it this way is that the filler mixes easily and grinds off the glass easily so the glass can be reused. I have not found a better way in the last 50 years.
