Much better!

When I ordered more glue last week, I was looking to see what the largest size was that came in squeeze bottles (as opposed to paint cans), and I saw those containers that go into a caulking gun, so I thought I'd give them a try. Well, let me tell you, this is THE ANSWER! These things automatically ensure that the ratio is always correct, and if you put the tips on them, the epoxy is perfectly mixed, too! I was able to apply the glue just like the plastic baggies, but way less mess. I'm sure I even used less glue in the process. These may not be practical for smaller glueing jobs, because the tips are $1.75 each, and you throw them away after you use them (along with a small amount of glue), but for large jobs like this, they are perfect!
