like I said Eric, the Epoxy is just aesthetic...The connector is mostly filled with hot glue..Then convered with epoxy to seal it and make it look perddy..

 

Given what these cables are used for its hard for me to believe that they would break...especially inside the connector...Sure the cable could break, but if your just using them to connect TX/RX to the mixer, the cable never moves..

I thought about using an epoxy filler but decided that with hot glue & a heat gun it's fairly easy to take the assembly apart to do any repairs that might be required down the road.

The biggest problem with many of these low profile right angle cables is that everything is glued together, making future repairs impossible. Good looking ahead Eric!

Hey, Matt!

 

Really beautiful work. Are you adding color (I'm assuming it's model paint) to the uncured 70/30 epoxy mix, or do you paint the hardened dome after the fact? I'm asking because, if it's painted, I'd be concerned about the paint scratching off after the fact.

Thanks Karl!

 

Yes, I add paint to the epoxy before applying. The paint will definitely scratch off if you apply it after the epoxy hardens.

What type of paint do you add to the epoxy to color it? I tried acrylic  ink but it affected the curing of the epoxy. 

 

Also when filling the XLR-f with hot glue after soldering, how do you fill without filling up the space behind the release button. This has been a big challenge for me.
