There are some solvents for this wax, as well.  The same places that
sell/use the epoxy will know.

OR, some standard weightlifters weights stacked up on the top piece of wood.
you DO need some sort of locater pins to keep the stack from "squishing"
sideways, though, if the clamp force is applied unevenly (which it will be,
guaranteed.....)  Lead shot also works well, if you have hundred kilos or so
lying around.

Don't over catalyze the epoxy!  Your layup is in the middle of a bunch of
thermal insulator, and if it gets too hot, bad things happen.
