J B Weld

Just got some of this 2 part stuff. It's the original, not the Kwik stuff. I used it a while back to "glue" m,y parking brake handle(plastic) to the metal stud it was once attached to. I'm curious though...

what are some of the applications you've used it for? What's it's breaking limit? Thanks.

I have used it to build a small engine manifold I could no longer buy ...it was broken in half and 1/2 was missing.....then I used a dremel tool to carve it out...worked for a few months but the gasoline mix broke it down so got a block of teflon from an airfield mechanic and carved one from that..did the trick...kind of like duct tape...how did we live without it?

asetone (sp?) will turn super glue into something like a wet booger.

oh, to model 70 original question.

I have a 2002 Chevy PU. It has a center front seat that the hole back flops down to form an arm rest for the 2 outbond people. The top of that flips up to reveal a storage compartment. The hinge on mine broke. Just yesterday I put it back on after fixing the hinge with j-b.

My wife and I just bought a new (to us) house. The former owners had 5 kids. All seemed to go thru the front door and slame it shut on the way out. The front door has a leaded glass insert in it with maybe 30 pieces of glass and lead at each joint. Over the years of slamming, the glass would keep moving after the door hit the jam. If I pushed on the glass I could move it over an inch. j-b welded each joint. Tightened it right up.

I have used JB Weld to repair the sealing surface on shafts, repair nicks in hydraulic rams, and for spot putty on rock nicks that go to the metal on my cars. Sand it smooth and paint with spray touch up and it is as good as new. I used a product like JB Weld (Belzona Molecular) to repair a broken trigger about thirty five years ago and it is as good as ever. I added a bit to the back of the trigger so it would hit the trigger guard to act as a stop. (which is what I was trying to do when I broke the trigger).
Slow cure epoxy is good for just about anything where metal is concerned as long as the temp stays below 200 degrees F.

I kicked up rock into my radiator 15 miles from nowhere. By the time I got to my fishing hole my radiator was bone-dry. A little dab of JB in the right spot and I was good to go. That was 3 years ago and that truck is still running strong with no complaints.

Lets see JB Weld. . . . . . ok

In High school used it to put the chrome strip back on my '82 silverado 3/4 ton. They guy who bought the truck from me 5 years later had to use a wolverine grinder to get it back off.

Front screen door (aluminum kind) ripped off the frame during a storm because it wasn't latched good. I straighted the bent hinges with a small hammer and JB welded it back on since the screw holes were stripped out. That was 3 years ago. Its still there.

Used JB Weld to fix a leak in a tank on a water well. That was around 18 years ago, the people who bought my grand grandmothers house are still using the same tank.

A buddy of mine had a mounting bracket break on his radiator on a '67 1/2 mustang in high school. We JB welded it back in place (It was originally sweat welded to the frame) and when I spoke to him 4 years ago (14 years after the fix) it was still holding.

Tractors, Mowers, houses, cars, I have used JB weld ALOT. I prefere the good old faishioned kind to the new kwik set stuff.

I have used it glue the aluminum guide for the actuator rod on my GMC trucks transmission, that was 50,000 miles ago. I glued my XS Scout mount onto a Mauser with it, 4 or 5 years ago, still holding in both counts.

Good Stuff
