I'm planning to build a new saucer with a 38 mm MMT out of the same foam I used for the 54 mm saucer. Instead of 2 oz fiberglass as with the 54 mm, I'm thinking of using cotton cloth. I already epoxied some to both sides of a piece of scrap foam and it turned out to be the perfect material, because when I bend the foam, the cotton doesn't crack like fiberglass does. This is exactly what I need my saucer to do, bend without cracking. My concern is that cotton can be flammable. If it's saturated with epoxy, it won't catch fire will it? Does anyone know?
