Seeing the epoxy pour for the guys table top, brings back memories when I was working. The diagnostic equipment we serviced and install required an absolute level pad for it to be install on. We poured an epoxy pad by making a damn on the floor with plastic corner protector sealed with silicone caulking compound. One night after doing the pour we did a lunch break and came back, it had started to leak. What a mess we had to stop the leak then refill the pad and worry about the epoxy that had now was outside the pad. And the stuff we used to stop the leak being stuck to the floor after the cure. Another time I had to dispose of extra epoxy, it had to be mixed to be a solid before I did. I mixed 5 Gal. bucket and it created so much heat with being that deep it caught on fire in my yard. I'm happy to be retired, not much excitement now. :HaHa :HaHa
