What if you're using a thixotropic resin ?
I've got one cold cure formulation I use that would have you sitting there all day trying to pull it into the syringe.
I use Epiglass resin and I just keep a damp mineral spirit-soaked piece of rag to wrap around the nozzle on the hardener when I'm done. The resin pump doesn't seem to plug up at all.
I just heat the epoxy and hardener up with a small electric heater with a fan and fill 3 "A",
and 3 "B" syringes at one time. I pull out the plunger and pour it in from the top. Replace the plunger, remove any air bubbles, and then push out any excess resin back into the can until the plunger lines up with a line on the syringe. Takes all of 2 minutes.
