Go pro and use JB Weld. Superglue is amateur.

The adapter pack you'd need to mount to any rail is $5 on Amazon -

u/Jhubbz86 · 15 pointsr/buildapcsales

I've posted this tutorial before, and I'm gonna do it again, for anyone wanting to know how to mount this bad boy. Other people have messaged me saying they've used different adapter mounts and a dremel instead of the JB Weld method. About two weeks now, and still doing great!



I used this guy's Amazon tutorial on how to put the adapter on, although I got the non-quick set version that comes in seperate tubes.

These are the items I purchased:

  • VESA adapter, almost twice as strong as the quick-set.

  • This exact JB Weld, although I got mine from the local Lowe's.

  • Monitor Mount, I went single mount over double, so I could have more freedom of placement.

    Here are the pics of my setup. Please note, I waited a full 24 hours before mounting them. I know people get antsy, but just wait!!! Also, when adjusting the monitors for the first time, don't use too much torque, or you might detach the adapter from the monitor. The scratch marks you see on the back of the monitor, next to the adapter are where I sanded it down. I don't care about the way it looks, since my desk is against a wall. You can probably be a bit more careful if you actually care about the looks. I also sanded off the paint from the adapters so I can get good contact between the rough plastic surface and the bare steel plate. The screws that came with the adapters, as long as I washered them out a little, were perfectly fine to use.

    There are still some small adjustments I need to make to the way they are lined up, but this is pretty much 99% done. I highly recommend anyone looking for more desk space to give this a shot.

This is a really precarious spot on the X230 and X220 lids. I've managed to repair a few that had this same issue.

I used a small spot of J-B Weld imbedded with a small finishing nail laid across the break for extra reinforcement in the area shown in the photograph here.

You just need to remove the screen bezel and temporarily push aside the antenna wires. Make sure everything is aligned and let it set up for about 24 hours and the bond will be virtually impossible to break.

u/j-ock · 5 pointsr/Pieces

The glass doesn't get extremely hot, but it does get pretty warm when you're lighting the bowl, so I don't trust glues. I would use JB Weld, it's extremely strong, water resistant and heat resistant up to 500 degrees F. It won't last if you put the flame right to it, but it will easily handle the low heat from the bowl. Make sure to lather it on thick on the the broken edges, and around the outside to create a support. it won't be super clean, but if you lather on enough it can be sanded down to be smoother.

u/JackanapesHB · 5 pointsr/Homebrewing

A little JB Weld to patch the leak up a bit. I wouldn't recommend using it as a serving keg due to the higher pressure, but could use it as a fermenter. It should be able to hold a few PSI's from the fermentation process or pressurize it 1 or 2 PSI to do a transfer.

u/malohi · 4 pointsr/Luthier

I've done a few guerrilla-style repairs to brass and woodwind instruments in my day.

A cheap and easy fix is some "JB Weld", a steel reinforced epoxy. Just put a pea-sized drop under that joint and clamp it down overnight. Done and done. No need for solder, and it's under $10.

u/matt314159 · 3 pointsr/computertechs

this was the epoxy we tried, this is another kind we have on-hand that is just too unwieldy/thick to do a job like this.

Is this the kind you're referring to that does work? I never really tried it, thinking it would be similar in effect to the epoxy glue. There's just so much torsion on that location, I worry about how well it would hold.

I should also mention that this is a college help desk and we provide our services 100% free of charge--the only thing the students pay is for the actual cost of parts. It's all about getting them back up and running as economically as possible, since most of the students are broke and just want it back to a functional level so they can write papers, skype, and facebook again. So while negative goodwill (badwill?) is something I'd like to avoid, it's not like we're worried about losing profit or anything as a result.

u/Leakedd · 3 pointsr/Jeep
u/HackPad · 3 pointsr/thinkpad

I was able to repair the magnesium base of my X220 using J-B Weld.

It was a bit tricky to get the pieces to sit in the proper position while it cured, but the resulting bond has been really sturdy.

u/mellokind · 3 pointsr/fixit

I bet that J B Weld would hold that. That's a "cold welding" substance, you mix the stuff in the two tubes together and stick the broken sections back together with it.

That stuff does have its limitations under loads, but I've used it for things before that carried more weight and it held just fine.

u/MrCandid · 3 pointsr/techsupportmacgyver

Great list!
just placed an order for the Instamorph, I can think of a lot of things I can use it for.

another good thing to keep handy is JB Weld, it has saved me countless times.

u/Kupiga · 3 pointsr/bicycling
u/Boomerkuwanga · 2 pointsr/knifeclub

JB weld is an epoxy. You can buy a tube for like 6 or 7 bucks. It doesn't require welding. I've removed dozens of stripped screws with this stuff.

u/simonsarris · 2 pointsr/Logan

hope grad school is going well gabs

I've had the same issue before, fixed it with this stuff:

u/sthone · 2 pointsr/3Dprinting

It might be a little overkill but.... JB Weld would work.

u/SnowHawkMike · 2 pointsr/Leica

They would be a hell of a lot cheaper if they were;

Official Leica Cufflinks: $970 USD

DIY Leica Cufflinks
DIY Cufflinks Guide: $0 + Replacement Leica M Shutter Speed Dial $99.98 + 2 Silver Cufflink Blanks $16+ 2 Silver Contact Screws $15.80 USD to fill in the screw hole and be trimmed flush, + JB Weld to really nail it down $12.96 USD = $144.74 USD

You can make a genuine pair, with pure silver posts, and at most an hour of time for $825.26 less.

u/Turquoise_HexagonSun · 2 pointsr/headphones

Ever try JB Weld? It's no average epoxy.

u/[deleted] · 2 pointsr/headphones

This can be fixed.

Use some epoxy do not use glue. Glue sucks, even gorilla or super glue hasn't got shit on epoxy.

I swear to you, if prepared and applied properly, the bond with the JB Weld linked for you will be stronger than the damn plastic after you let it set for 24 hours.

If the plastic breaks again, it won't be where you used the JB Weld. The shit is insane.

u/crazykoala · 2 pointsr/Filmmakers

Since your title specifies low cost you can save some money by using a wired lav mic like this Audio Technica or this Olympus lav mic. You simply plug it into the camera's mic input. A 3.5mm extension cable might be needed to reach the camera. Use the lav mic with an inexpensive voice recorder if you need the subject to move around. Smart phones have decent audio recording apps too. Syncing the audio in post can be a hassel so only do this if the shot requires being untethered. If you record audio with a separate recorder it helps to mark it by saying a scene number and making a clap sound so you can find it and sync it with the video editing software.

For lighting you might consider an inexpensive LED light and a second battery. Charge one battery while using the other.

I've used clamps like this and this for quick and simple mount of camera and small lights to a chair, windowsill, cupboard, etc. You can use JB Weld to put a 1/4-20 nut-coupler on the light if it doesn't have it already.

edit: I like Canon equipment and their line of Vixia Camcorders starts at around $300 and has a mic input. The lens and image stabilization gets you a nice picture compared to a camera phone or similar "cheap" camera.

IIRC Premiere has a basic mode that uses a simpler timeline more like Apple's iMovie. You can download 30 day trial versions of the latest Adobe products. Give Premiere Elements a try.

u/SystemFolder · 2 pointsr/Guitar

I’d take it apart a little bit, so you can easily get to the areas you need to, and use some J-B Weld to glue it back together.

u/Casper_The_Gh0st · 2 pointsr/Fishing

is it aluminum body or carbon fiber if its an alloy get some jbweld, i used it to weld fittings to 2 stroke rc car mufflers that had high temps and it held grate

apparently there marine weld is good for composites

u/givesomefucks · 2 pointsr/bonnaroo

some stuff you might want to think about bringing:

>lock and chain/bike chain.

you're going to be leave your campsite for ~12 hrs if no one goes back for a break. it takes about a minute to run a chain through your cooler handles, foldable chairs and other stuff. it's also easy to jb weld a metal loop onto an ez-up so they dont walk away either, i've never heard of someone ganking an entire ez up at roo, but i'd be pissed if mine was gone when i came back after the first night.

its easy for someone to walk off with one chair, its almost impossible for someone to carry your entire campsite away without anyone saying anything about it. and if you bring enough chain you can loop it around the wheel of your car, and i doubt thieves are going to go through all that hassle when no one else is locking their shit down.


grass might be super long at your campsite

>battery powered fan and string

hang the fan from the middle of your tent and itll be cool enough to get a few more hours sleep in the morning

>battery powered camp lantern

flashlights are good, but a handsfree light that illuminates everything around it is really nice if you dont go to sleep as soon as you get back to your camp.

>extra socks into centeroo

i prefer sanucks and going sockless, but if you're wearing socks bring an extra pair with you in your camelpack/backpack. wet socks suck and can mess up your whole weekend if you're stuck wearing them

u/pedantic_jackass · 2 pointsr/thinkpad

If the cracked lid casing is the common problem shown in the photograph here there's a pretty easy fix:

Apply a small spot of J-B Weld embedded with a small finishing nail laid across the break for extra reinforcement in the area shown in the photograph here.

You just need to remove the screen bezel and temporarily push aside the antenna wires. Make sure everything is aligned and let it set up for about 24 hours and the bond will be virtually impossible to break. I've done this on a number of X220 and X230 units and it holds up really well.

u/btull89 · 1 pointr/drums

Try using jb weld or some other type of concrete paste and paste the rod to a drum key. You'll have to throw away the drum key, but it is just an idea.

u/tkhendall · 1 pointr/litecoin

Buy the Jeff Bezos model
Garden Torch
JB Weld
Airsoft Rifle

If you want an actual flame thrower then give your money to these people X15

Or fill a super soaker with gasoline and save $500.

u/ConfirmedSFW · 1 pointr/StonerEngineering

I bought this a few min ago. doesn't even have epoxies so I figured that epoxies are probably just as strong if not stronger than those.

u/uberfastman · 1 pointr/knifeclub

This is a popular method. Also, if it doesn't work, you can use something like JB Weld Epoxy (thanks /u/Boomerkuwanga) to attach another small screw to the top of it, let it set, then screw it out with whatever normal driver works for the screw you attached. I'd heard of this method using superglue, but apparently the JB weld is much better!

u/esotericguy · 1 pointr/DIY
  • clamp it with anything. basically, just make it so it stays still and the pieces are as close together as possible.

  • this is J-B Weld. Available at any hardware store.

  • I'd take a gob of it and fill it into the crack. Think of fixing a hole in a section of drywall.

  • let it dry (about 6 hours) and then use sandpaper/file to make it smooth and flush with the rest of the edge.

  • paint it black.

    It won't have the same texture and will look a bit ghetto. But it will get the job done.
u/wrath_of_grunge · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

jb weld that shit

u/jfc1994 · 1 pointr/hockeyplayers

If you go the plug route, the hot glue on the plug is bound to come loose eventually so I picked up some of this.

Only downside being that the plug will be in there forever

u/luckyhunterdude · 1 pointr/DIY

That's quick curing so I wouldn't use that, but I also have never used that product before either, I just know in general the faster curing stuff is more brittle. just the old school JB weld is what i was thinking.

u/JimDantin · 1 pointr/chromeos

Superglue is not a good choice for repairs like this.

Use an industrial epoxy like JB Weld

u/slapcornea · 1 pointr/Volvo

I had a thin 4 inch long crack in my XC70 oil pan which leaked oil within 20 minutes. I drained the oil out of the car, let the crack drain out fully, cleaned the outside of the pan and coated almost the entire outside of the oil pan with JB weld. This was 20,000 KM ago and the JB weld is holding strong with no sign of giving up. I also fixed a snow blower engine which had a crack in the head with JB weld many years ago, that snow blower still works.

u/ebuu · 1 pointr/maille

I would advise against welding, mainly because of the low melting point of brass. I don't know how your piece is laid out, but I imagine that it would be difficult to keep the heat away from the brass while trying to weld the steel together.

Soldering could work, I don't see why it wouldn't albeit a little frustrating. Brazing is something that came to mind. Another is J.B. Weld. I haven't used J.B. Weld for sealing jump rings, but I've used it as weld filler in a pinch.

Good luck!

u/deltadave · 1 pointr/minipainting

If you must use super glue, then Loctite is my favorite. However it is brittle and sometimes has problems binding to certain types of plastic.

Epoxy works much better for metal or pewter figurines. For most plastics Tenax 7r is the best.

u/rascarob · 1 pointr/Vitamix

First of all, are the cracks down near the bottom corners? If so, there is something you can try. I've seen a "repair," but it was on a polycarbonate container, not on the Tritan material, which your container is, assuming it is a home model from 7-10 years ago. So I'm not if it will work, but you could try it. The repair I saw used JB Weld to reinforce the outside of the corners. I don't know if the JB Weld sticks better to polycarbonate than Tritan, but it's worth a shot if you are looking for a repair.

The other thing you can do is look for a container without blade and lid, and transfer over your blade assembly. There's a wrench you can buy specifically for the task, or you can jury rig something. You have to be careful not to under or over tighten.

KennKatastrophe is right that Vitamix would just replace the container shell.

u/veni_vidi_vale · 1 pointr/headphones

you can solder the snapped cable if you can get enough exposed to make a good joint, but the frame is broken at a point that is constantly under pressure (which is probably why it broke) and if you use solder to join the ends it will just shear again.

I wonder how the broken frame will hold up with something like this. I have never used it to fix headphones but have been pleased with how well steel-reinforced epoxy works in other high-stress applications.

u/CreeperDays · 1 pointr/trees

I would get an adapter like this and epoxy it into the hole using JB-Weld or something similarly temperature resistant.

u/agent_of_entropy · 1 pointr/Frugal

Get some JB Weld and epoxy it back together. I did this with a microwave oven handle and it lasted over ten years. Available at your local *Mart store.

You're looking at $125 to fix it. #8 in the diagram

u/EGOtyst · 1 pointr/DIY

So. That holder doesn't seem to be the right one for that shower head.

How nice are you wanting this to look vs. the level of function vs. cost and effort you want to put in?

If you want FUNCTIONAL only... I would recommend a big-ass carabiner and some good 2-part epoxy for metal. put the carabiner on that hangar with the epoxy and let that operate as your holder from now one.

  • Pros: It works. You don't have to dick with removing the current hangar and trying to find a new one.

  • Cons: It will look kinda like ass.

    Alternative 2: Find a new showerhead mount. Look at the measurements of the products vs. those of the handle on your showerhead. Make sure it fits. Follow the instructions to mount it. TAKE SPECIAL CARE that you either use drywall anchors (which should probably come with the device), or drill it directly into a stud.

    Shower Curtain: This is a bit more difficult, because of the positioning of the window and the sink. I would recommend mounting your shower curtain from the ceiling using these. Again, use the mounting instructions that come with them. And for god's sake, when mounting into the ceiling, use drywall anchors. Past that, just get a rod and curtain.

    Tools needed for this endeavor include: Small batter operated drill/screwdriver. They are all over amazon for <$50. In fact, if you are TRULY a beginner, here is a cool little set for you. You aren't going to be building any houses with it, but it has some basics you will need around the house. If any of these break, that shows you that you use it enough to warrant something more expensive.
u/DasGoon · 1 pointr/fixit

Check out JB Weld. Best damn epoxy ever. Used it to fix a similar problem on an old Dell. Just make sure you clean and sand each piece you apply it to. The sanding is to rough up the surface so you get a better bond.

u/meeksdigital · 1 pointr/tea

Do you still have the pieces? If it didn't shatter into tiny pieces, you could definitely try to reconstruct it and glue it back together with JB Weld.

u/hahainternet · 1 pointr/metalworking

Any decent two part epoxy will do. You can order some insanely strong ones from lab stores if you really need it, but start with this.

edit to say: You may want to get a pair of thin plates to sandwich the joint so the epoxy can attach to the surface rather than edge. You can get all sorts in tiny quantities from ebay with no problem.

u/Code206 · 1 pointr/motorcycles

Just spend a couple bucks and buy yourself some JB Weld. Fix that shit right up.

u/rattlesnake30 · 1 pointr/HomeImprovement

Okay thanks. I'm leaning towards this one since it says its temp resistant up to 500F, waterproof, and is nontoxic after setting.

u/hoov3r707 · 0 pointsr/backpacking

Super glue maybe? Maybe check out an adhesive called JB Weld . It’s an all-purpose adhesive that works surprisingly well, especially on items that don’t take a lot of strain or pressure.

u/baddragin · 0 pointsr/minipainting

It's not made for metal. You could use jbewld but far warning the stuff can get messy

u/dmpdulux3 · 0 pointsr/PoliticalHumor

Of course someone can make it on their own. You don't even have an argument there. All that is is a bump. I'm pretty sure I could make a bump I'm for banning bump stocks too, but I'm not naive enough to think it'll do that much

and lets not forget that to even get to this point we have banned all semiautomatic firearms, and are now placing additional restrictions as well. Pretty close to repealing the second amendment.
