In that case, use some chewing gum!

You should be OK Jon. Make sure you use the same type of eposy though. And I'd even go so far as to rough up the cured epoxy.

Sorry about that but I was worried. I have seen a couple of blades shed when running and luckly nobody was in the road. I have not done any for a while but I used to also make them for myself. When racing FAI once you found something that you like and worked you copied it.

The MAAC safety code discusses that a repaired or damaged propeller shall not be used to fly a model aircraft, be it gas, glow or a park flyer. I know that your's is likely neither.
I'm very happy that you are so creative (making your own pilot head, props, etc) but I'd be concerned when something is rotating at high speeds that has been held together with epoxy, regardless if it is on the business end of a speed 280.
Please consider the safety of others if you do this.

Polyesters and other polymers generate a wax film, epoxy generates what is known as "Amine Blush". Still a waxy film that should be wiped off. I have never had any problems doing epoxy to epoxy.

Most hobby store just sell the lower priced stuff, they all exhibit the amine blush.

More expensive epoxys that do not exhibit the blush are usually not sold in hobby stores. Hobby stores usually carry what they can sell faster to make more money, money, and more money.
