I was just wondering if I should fill a hollow Ever-Ready C40 with epoxy when performing a knot replacement/restoration.

Thanks,
Chris

I would fill it with something! I actually have a nice C40 all shined up and ready for a knot sitting on the bench at home. I usually put something else in the handle (cork, wooden dowel, etc.) and then fill epoxy around it. Then I'll glue something like a coin or two on top of that to fine tune the loft before setting the knot onto the new "shelf."

Epoxy will work by itself, it just takes a lot of epoxy (especially in a C40).

The wood dowel or cork sounds good, no sense wasting epoxy. I had planned to use a few coins for weight as well.

Thanks,
Chris

You can even use sawdust and epoxy mixed together.

Hi Chris

On an Ever-Ready F40 handle restore I went with alternate layers of epoxy and pennies...

Good luck with whatever method you decide to go with.

Take care, Mike
