Six10 works great, you can use the per mixing attachments or just spread out a small amount and mix by hand then reseal. Never had a problem with it hardening before tube was empty.

Epoxy can sometimes be softened and removed by applying heat. Since you don't want to soften your joint, perhaps you could use a soldering iron to heat up the specific area you want to remove then scrape at it with an X Acto knife.

You might try calling WEST Products tech support, they generally have excellent advice. You might be able to soften up the cured product by soaking it with acetone for a while. Fold up some paper towels, cover the part you want to remove, saturate the paper towel with acetone, and then cover it with plastic so the acetone doesn't evaporate. Obviously, try this on a scrap before you go after your finished work. Careful cleanup when the uncured Six10 is applied is a better technique.By the way, plain white vinegar is a less volatile solvent for uncured epoxy.
