Remove Trapped Air Bubbles

Here I have re-injected the holes with my syringe. I did cut about .5 cm off the tip of the syringe which makes the hole bigger to accommodate the more viscous thickened epoxy.


The green stick you see is simply a piece of weed whacker line. This is a very simple and cheap tool for popping any trapped air bubbles and moving them to the surface so you don't get any voids. All you do is move it in, out and around the hole until you get no more air bubbles then slowly pull it out.
