Well I'm going to third this idea. My sis and her husband are both vets
and were able to supply me with a life time supply of absolutely perfect
for epoxy syringes. I swear they were first designed for epoxy and
second for the critters :)
I bet if you were to stop by a vet office they'd give ya enough to hook
You can buy needle-less oral syringes at drugstores,they are used to give
children does of liquid medicines. I got mine at Eckerds for .50 each.
10ml max,with calibrations in .2ml increments or .5 tsp increments.
Put colored tape around one to designate as "resin" or "hardener".
I "kinda" lucked up a couple of years ago when my wife contracted E Coli in
her surgical site in her back. As a result of this infection I had to infuse
her with antibiotics 3 times a day through a "PIC" line in her arm. This
would entail using 4-5 10cc syringes at each infusion. I wound up with 100+
syringes that could only be used once for saline and heparin. Needless to
say, I kept them all. They can be used multiple times and fit real good onto
refrigerator water supply line tubing (the plastic stuff) to draw the epoxy
up. I even went to the extent of drilling holes in the tops of my holding
bottles so I would not have to draw the straw out and wipe it off each time.
Go to the drug store and see if they'll sell you a syringe without
the needle. They often will. Or at least here they will if you
explain what you want it for.
You might find that they have a "children's liquid medicine" applicator
that consists simply of a needle-less syringe. Intended for giving
things like cough medicine to infants and toddlers who can't/won't cope
Lee Valley sells a number of glue applicators, including a packet
of three (?) 20-ish CC plastic syringes with a curved "spout". <$5.
With care, you can use these things multiple times, because the
epoxy won't stick to them. You can trim the spout to the diameter
you want - rather like a tube of caulk.
