I suggest that you wrap your handle with masking tape prior to the epoxying also. That way if epoxy gets on it, you can peel off the tape, thus remove the epoxy. If you don't have to use MEK don't, first off it's not good stuff for humans - it's been linked to cancer and is on the EPA's hit list in regards to not using it in industry.
