    Yes, I was going to use vacuum, but my pump and peelply haven't arrived yet, so I am trying without.

    Usually you don't have to with standard epoxy resins, but most have best strength when cured at 20-25C, which is slightly above room temperature. Usually a garage is below 20C and in my particular case I'll have a workshop at the temperature of the outside
    If you're a noob, copy 1:1 what somebody already flies without too much questions, you'll find the answers later.

    Ok. That makes sense! Thanks for the lesson.

    Missed that bit.
    I never used peel ply, I was using a bin bag as replacement- fold it few times and with sharp awl or nail puncture loads of holes. Works the charm, with kitchen towels or potato sack as a breather on top. Talk about being a cheapskate, eh? And when I was too lazy for that I was getting some donuts in a shop as they come in already perforated bags

    Yeah! Ordinary household items are often the solution. I was thinking about making a vacuum pump from a fridge compressor, but I didnt bother and just ordered one.

    Cracked the mold this evening. The parts came out rather well. A couple of imperfections because of air between the paint and the glass, but no biggie. The stabs are stronger, stiffer and heavier than they need to be, so I may make another lighter pair.
