use a sieve and use sawdust from sanding, sawing let in the sun to dry before use, a little microsphere and you will have a fillet
cheap, strong and easy to sand
Perhaps try using vinegar instead of alcohol on a cotton rag or sponge when its tacked off. Heaps cheaper.
Or a run a length of cheap packing tape over the fillet the go over it with your fillet stick then once its cured will be a lot easier to sand.
Have you used vinegar for this purpose?
If it works it would be great because after a while the alcohol will eat through the gloves. So using vinegar definitely would be cheaper.
Actually alcohol never did eat through any of my gloves. I used it to wipe up as I made fillets while building Peace IV and the wiping up was nearly constant. I was also thinking that a brush lightly damp with epoxy might be drawn along a fillet to smoothe it. I got lots of experiments ahead. Nev will have to build another dinghy!
