Heads up for anyone looking to try this - this funnel DOES fit the wide-mouth Siraya Blu bottles.

That said, the spout reaches pretty far down into the bottle, and Blu is really viscous, so you'd have to pour very slowly to avoid overwhelming the small-ish upper reservoir in this design.

I have a question , is it safe pouring and working the resin under the light bulb ? Im afraid it would be cured

There is an easy way to find out if any light cures the resin. Put a small amount onto a flat plate/dish or piece of aluminium foil made into a plate with dam walls. Come back in say 30 minutes and see if there has been any curing. If you want to know if it is safe just to change the resin in the vat, put it out for say 10 minutes and see what the result is. This will give you a fair indication of whether your lights will cure the resin. I think you are safe with most LEDs but the old flouro lights do cure the resin.

I'm not sure if a simple lightbulb radiate also UV light.

I'd be worried about white LED lights, since the white starts as UV which is converted by phosphor to broad-spectrum white. But I operate all of my resin printing under white LED light, and haven't had any issues whatsoever.
