    JB Weld question

    I never did use the stuff but I’m about to embark on a a seat quick release project. I’d like to copy a fix I’ve seen on the “ Mule nuts” thread where a member JB welds an Allen bolt to an Allen key. My question is: will JB weld really hold the two components together? Thank you

    It will hold, but for how long bouncing around is the question. A real weld would be a better idea.

    Way too many past bikes and builds to list. I won't bore you. Questions? Just ask.

    Apply it properly and it should easily meet your needs with the relatively modest torque needed for seat bolts. Cheers

    JB weld applied to clean prepped surfaces is amazing stuff but I agree in your scenario I'd go for a real weld even though JB will probably work just fine since theres really no stress on the weld unless you're turning the screws

    I like the Gorilla Glue Apoxy. I have used it on several applications and find it much stronger than JB Weld.

    Scratch'm up , degrease, and JB. It'll do fine. I used it to "weld" a socket to a stripped oil drain bolt and it worked like charm.

    Clever fix!

    JB Quick is, um...quick, but not as strong as Regular JB.
