Didn't read responses so sorry if someone already covered this.

Golfworks 2 part epoxy (24 hour cure)
Lay out 4-5 strips of masking tape to make a square on a table/workbench.
Dole out a little smaller than a dime size portion of each (adjust quantity as needed obviously).
Mix with popsicle stick, leave said popsicle stick with epoxy mixture laying on a portion of your tape square away from where you are currently working.
Once you're done epoxying, leave tape sqaure overnight to check your bond before given your club a crank.
Peel up the tape when you're all done for an easy clean up.

EDIT: LMFAO everyone does the same basic thing.

I use a digital scale and mix by weight.  Better than eyeballing

Except the weight of the two components might not be a 1/1 ratio...

Best to mix by volume, if you use 45ml syringes with an EPX applicator and appropriate nozzle you can’t really go wrong.

I know builders who have mixing boards with markings on them to “eyeball” the volume dispensed for glues that are not in syringes. (I measure by the length of the trail of glue I Am dispensing if I need to do this)

With the volume I use for builds I’ve just switched to 200ml syringes, the applicator isn’t cheap but will work out cheaper in the long run.

I hope you know that 10 ml of hardener  isn't the same weight as 10 ml of resin.

7 parts to 10 parts by weight.  Can't get much easier.

I stumbled upon a great way to make sure you have the right 1/1 ratio the other day. Normally use cardboard but had an old scorecard on the bench so I used that. The boxes for scores are a perfect way to make sure you've got the same volume. Then I just mix with a tee or popsicle stick like everyone else.

I tear off a piece of cardboard from an old amazon box.  Then I cut a stir stick with a box cutter from the same box. I thought about investing in a counterbalanced stir stick but I haven't been fitted properly.
