JB Weld, the most used thing in my toolbox

greenspun.com : LUSENET : A Country Singletree : One Thread

So far I have used that "magic gray goo" to fix the sink stopper, my review mirror, two pot handles, the antenna connection on my stereo, the flush handle on the toilet, the plug for my indoor grill, my boots and used it to make an emergency washer for my faucet. How many uses have ya'll found for it?

Jay, I will have to check out this wonderful stuff called "JB Weld". My favorite fix-it is duct tape, with baling wire coming in second.

Those are in my toolbox too, along with zip ties and bungee cords. JB is good and only costs a couple dollars for a pack.

Cool! I wonder if it will fix the leak in the gas tank of my tractor? What dessolves this stuff anyway? Is it better than Super Glue? Gee whiz, if Grizz fixed a tractor's engine Block 7 years ago and it still is holding, imagine glueing your fingers together. WOW!!!!

I have used it on fuel tank leaks by screwing a screw that was coated with it into the hole as a plug. Just make sure the area of the patch is dry and don't use a drill to screw it in (sparks).

Several years ago a buddy of mine and I moved my sawmill. It was a ten mile move. We used his farmall A to tow the mill. We got about two miles from town when the tractor stopped running, just before we got to the highway overpass.

Upon investigation we discovered the point assembly in the distributor fell apart. It was a sunday and everything was closed but luckily he owned the NAPA store. He went to the store and brought back a pack of JB Quick. We glued the points back together and we were on the road within twenty minutes. The tractor still runs with the same points we glued up.

Susan: JB Weld is a two part epoxy type glue, virtually impervious to chemical degradation and will stick to just about anything.

Re: Super glue. Many years ago, shortly after super glue hit the market we had a Lorena Bobbit type incident around here. It seems this womans husband liked to carouse the bars. One night he came home, fell into bed drunk and promptly crashed. He musta been pretty drunk because he didn't trouble himself to eliminate the ample olefactory evidence of spending time with another woman.

His wife, being more than a little miffed, got the super glue and glued his guy thing to his leg. Hubby awakens in the morning, having a powerful urge to pee, only to discover his thing was glued to his leg. After a messy pee he was taken to the hosp to have it surgically seperated from his leg. It was the talk of the town for a coupla months.

Oh my God!!!!! John you made me laugh. Sorry guys but I don't think there is a woman on this board who hasn't at one time or another thought of doing such a thing to a guy. Not that I would ever do it, but the thought that someone did? Heeee Hoooo Haaaa Heeee!!!!!!!!! I wonder if the guy ever had any more extra curricular activity?

Thanks for the laugh.

Sorry Susan, I actually never thought of doing something like that. Wow, way to funny. ROFL

I was thinking it coulda been worse. She didn't castrate him. She didn't amputate him. And she didn't glue it to his belly which woulda made aiming VERY challenging.

-- john (natlivent@pcpros.net), February 28, 2002.

ROFL......for many minutes

Or his hand to his thanng.....

You guys are way too funny. Wish I had heard about this a few years ago, it might have helped my ex with his raoming!

-- Sherry (tlnifty@ecenet.com), March 01, 2002.
