I am afraid that I don’t know what that is and this has gone over MY head!Isn't that just a bunch of JB Weld?
(Or was that a joke and it went completely over my head?)
JB Weld is a two-part epoxy. It's pretty common in the USA for redneck repairs. I'm not exactly sure why it's called JB Weld, but probably "JB" for someone's initials or something and "Weld" because it sticks parts together.I am afraid that I don’t know what that is and this has gone over MY head!
The only time I deal with welding is where I have put a structural weld on my plans (I’m an engineer).
The big thing about the "weld" part is from the original products. They included metal filler, so they were drillable, tappable and had much higher heat ranges that typical epoxies. They still have those products, but they've also added copper-pipe optimized, cure under water, wood-optimized, HDPE-compatible, etc. "flavors".JB Weld is a two-part epoxy … "Weld" because it sticks parts together.
