I was in the process of filling a small 1⁄16-in. by 6-in. gap in a granite slab with a two-part epoxy. I measured out the appropriate amount of epoxy from each container onto a piece of scrap cardboard and began the usual practice of stirring and stirring until the product was blended. At that moment, I was struck with an idea. I placed an 8d common nail backward in my cordless drill and then used the rotating nail head to stir. I was stunned at how fast and easy this method was, and at how much better it blended the epoxy. I have since used this method for other small epoxy repair projects, and the results have been excellent.
