Does anyone know a place locally that you can buy potting compound?

I don't know where to find it, but I've wanted to learn how to use it... would that make for a good class?

I do not know where to get it locally, but I had good success with some of the products from MG Chemicals. I in fact, somewhere, have a kit of their potting compound somewhere. Its a 1:1 ratio (resin/hardner), and its black. it does tend to settle over time, into this sludge, so not sure if the stuff is still viable. But, I could bring it to the lab if you wanted to at least see the product. Very low odor on this one as well.

Thanks I have some on the way from MG Chemicals that should be here today or Monday. I have a lot of this coming up in the near future and was hoping I could get it locally if needed rather than deal with the lead time of ordering.
