This is a copy of the original Git-Rot that has been around for 30 years.  It is
a very thin epoxy that takes about 24 hours to kick.  You drill a series of 1/4”
holes (say in a windowsill) and pour it in, then wait 15 minutes for it soak
into the end grain exposed by drilling the hole, then fill it up again, and
again, and again.  I have had it take 12 hours of filling before it slows down
enough to stop.  I wonder if soaking a piece in a pan of it would get it to
absorb - might work on something with as much end grain as a saw handle
