  • J B Weld Revisited

    Noob here,
    I'm finishing a four foot tall sculpture , which I hope to PC this weekend. I an effort to cover up a fair amount of deep scratches and mis-weldings I plan to use JB Weld. I tried a sample earlier today and found it covered well and flowed normally ( 400 for 25 min.) I noticed in searching the archives that the consensus is not to use it though my destructive tests showed a tight bond and no noticeable disintegration of the JB Weld. So...Comments, do I trust it?
    Thanks
    Dick

    If you tried it and are happy with the results go with what you see/feel/know....not with what you read.

    Disclaimer: No I am not bashing anyone in this forum, just saw an opertunity to use something my father kept telling me while growing up and jumped on the chance

      Correct-- if it works and you are happy then use it.The things on this forum are mearly suggestions not commandments. However if it pleases you , then you may call me Moses.

        as you probably noticed i started asking about JB awhile back....I too went with the JB weld...it worked and sure was a hell of alot cheaper than the almost thirty bucks for the metal lab..and much easier to work with...now maybe on a really deep dent it might be a different story..

          Thanks guys, I think I'll go with flow. The sample worked, why not the piece?
          Appreciate the thoughts.

            Has anyone tried our epoxy sticks?
            These are filled with steel, aluminum, copper etc.
            Anyone willing to try it?

              Sure would, I'm always looking for a better way to finish the surface blemishes. 30 years a blacksmith/weldor and still searching for the perfect way to finish. I would like to try a steel stick.
