    Epoxy Goof Up

    I goofed on a batch of West Epoxy the other day.
    I believe I mixed all hardener and no resin
    After 1000's of mixes I cant believe it so, but I was dead tired
    I thought it looked thin when I applied it
    Luckily it was mixed with fillers in a plywood block lamination and not a big glass layup

    The question is can I scrape off all of the mixture & clean with Acetone / Xylene and relaminate the wood?
    or is it F****?
    I'm concerned about the pure hardener that soaked into the end grain

    The plywood block fabrication was a fairly complicated endeavor and I'd rather reuse it

    Thanks for any insight!

    The correct mixture will be brittle at the point of contact with the wood
    A slow pishing bote.
