Rob writes: “JB Weld is described as a ‘cold weld’ adhesive.  It’s a two part epoxy and it’s good for everything from engine repair to electronics.  Another plus is it can be machined once it’s cured (drilled, tapped, shaped) making it even more versatile.  I find it more useful than duct tape (blasphemous I know) and always keep some regular and qwik on hand.”

So do we, Rob.  JB Weld gets such a bad rap because it’s so often used improperly.  I wonder why duct tape doesn’t get the same “shame!” response from the community?  Sure, you can misuse it.  But when used correctly, it’s incredibly useful.

Street pricing starts around $4.

    Awesome.. I’ve got a buddy that keeps that and duct tape in his car at all times.

    I’ve also seen it used to plug radiator leaks, and even to fix the sheet metal in the door brake of older BMWs where it gets pulled out.

    The last thing I used JB weld for was to fix a concrete anchor into its too-big hole, since there was equipment bolted above it which prevented me from simply drilling another, properly sized, hole. I mixed it up, gooped it into the hole, and sunk the anchor and stud in. Came back the next day and torqued it down. It held like a champ!

    had a mishap with my front fender. Some man ran into me & damaged my fender, h didn’t get a scrach, would JB Weld stick to Fber glass untill I could get it fixed? I’ll have to have a whole new fender to fix it properly.
