If you coat a pocket-shaped object with wax, it will pull right out after the epoxy or resin has set. That s assuming there are no flanges or other complicating shapes on it.

If it has any complicated shapes or flanges, cut the plug in pocket shape out of wax.
Pour the epoxy, push in the wax insert to the required depth (Inventive clamping may be required, may be easier to clamp first pour later).
When the epoxy is set you can just pull melt the wax plug out.
