A good idea. If you do so, make sure you use slow setting epxoy
resin. The reaction usually is exothermal and can produce quite a
bit of heat. And its also coupled by a positive feddback loop. The
more resin you have in one place, the hotter it gets when setting.
The hoter it gets, the faster it will set. The faster ist sets, the
more heat is produced :) Slowly setting resin is also of higer
viscosity, which makes it to creep deeper into the gaps and holes
and develops higher adhesive and cohesive forces, which, to come to
an end, makes it harder to get rid of it.
Or you could use an unstable explosive to fill the housing, of
course. But this, in turn, might prove to make it harder to find a
place to house your box :D
