If any weight is required I use lead wire and push it into the piping on the side of the hook I wish to sinkie. point upp or down before I apply the epoxy.
Epoxy is one of the worlds most alargy causing chemicals, so dont get it on you. If so you should clean it off A.S.A.P. with aceton.
If you need to take a leak in the middle of a gluing seccion, bite your lip!
