Mixing Resin Bonded Sand for Scratch Blocks

In progress
When mixing it is important not to cross-contaminate the original containers by allowing any of the catalyst to touch the resin. Any cross-contamination could lead to ruining the entire container of resin.
Sand - The sand should be washed, dried and filtered to 80# or 100# mesh for the best results. Sand can be purchased in 25lb or 50lb ready to go.

Bucket Method

Equally divide 50lb of sand into 2 5gal buckets
Prepare a dropcloth (paper) and weigh out the required amount of Resin

- Make a valley/pit in each sand bucket and slow add half of the measured resin to each
