Re: wheat flour as a fill

Epoxy fillers are rated for the strength they impart to the finished product. Of the common fillers chopped fiberglass is rated highest. Woodflour (any very fine sawdust) is rated medium. The fillers that are made for sanding/fairing are rated lowest. Where baking flour,talc,etc. fit on the chart is anybody's guess. If strength isn't part of the equation you can use almost anything. Woodflour has the advantage of being available in a wide variety of shades that can blend in with the wood it's applied to. Charlie
