a lot of people on these forums will say that a scale is better.
Not sure who would attest to that unless they don't have a ss pump. Scales are left open for human error. Mine ss pump is dead on every time small or large batches after all these years.

I used the pump for nearly 2 airplanes, am now using a scale cause i don't have much epoxy to mix

the pump stayed accurate throughout, the scale is a PIA

Just to put some numbers to it:
I did chapter 7 in a hair over 3 hours working by myself. I never could have done it in that amount of time if I was weighing my epoxy.

I think the SS pump is woth every cent ( which is evident in the fact that I have 2)

I don't know what you drink when you build, but Chapter 7 took me 61 hours, and I thought that was fast.

The 3 hours is ONLY the layup time. I did add 2 layers of kevlar to the belly on top of the standard plies but yeah, it went really fast.

Of course my elbows were smoking when I got done.
