Screwed JB Weld Repair Job

by birtanpublished on September 27, 2020

Hi I'm Brian welcome to the Brian's mobile one channel we do auto repair videos around here and on Wednesdays oftentimes do something that's wildcard Wednesday and my line of work I fix all kinds of stuff and I find a lot of crossovers I've been called a

Renaissance man in that I do a lot of different things I'm a jack of all trades and a master of one auto repair and in this video we're gonna be repairing a tripod I'm gonna use some principles that can be applied in the

Automotive field ideally I like to fix things factory you know do things that they are exactly the way that they're supposed to be but we do a little off-roading around here now and then I do a fabrication modifications to tools

And make them work better for a particular job that's sacrilege in some circles but I do what works best and in this video I'm going to be repaired as I said a tripod my first attempt failed but the second attempt I'm more proud of

Because it turned out solid I'm going to share that with you now and as I said you can apply this to different things in the automotive trade pot mail was found on cars just as it's found in the construction site let me know what you

Think in the comments below Ryan's mobile one so this is a tripod for a laser it's the kind of used for construction to make sure that you got your grading and everything just right I borrowed this from a friend and when I

Borrowed it I noticed it was broken I called him up I said hey I'm so sorry I broke your thing I don't know how I did it but it's broken now he's like no it's not you you know it's already like that when you got it there's this little

Piece right here so anyway I epoxy this using jb weld and it held kind of okay see a little bit of the remnants of that I got most of it all off but it just basically snapped off again in short order so what I wanted to do was I was

Gonna get a bolt and then thread the bolt in and use the bolt for the pivot but there's not a lot of extra material to make that happen so it isn't the next best thing I've got a whole bunch of these long em six by one bolts I put

This in the vise and drilled through it first and then before cleaning any of this up or buzzing it that fresh metal I had it against this and I put this in the vise held this on there best I could and then I used it kind of like a Kreg

Jig how you've got a little thing that guides a drill bit so I'm holding on to this thing by just a nub but I was able to drill it through I wanted to err on the side of caution have it go this way and not stick out

That way and ultimately that's what happened you can see where the threads go into here so the bolt I had to take the end of it down and I had to make this shorter by how much that is you see it sticks out by just that much so after

I jb weld this bolt in there and it's all tightened in I'm gonna let it dry and then I'm just gonna buzz the leftover off I can take this little cap and it'll fit over it just fine if I do it now well I just tapped it and

The bolts nuts right all the way I just thread this through and this is an aluminum that I can tell I think it's just some kind of work pop metal it's not steel so it kind of leaves you lacking in some options you can see

Where I've ground this and roughed it up so that I can cover it in jb weld and get it to hold good it doesn't want to go straight but you line it up with a socket it gets compliant there we go it wants to just wander off into oblivion

Should get really guided in and that's fine so I'm gonna cover in between with j-b weld I'm gonna cover of the threads everything in there with JB wow this is slow setting stuff none of the quick stuff just want it really thin and just

To get into everywhere so this is actually pretty decent with just the bolt but it's got a little bit of rattle room and you can take that up like I said I by using the jb weld I don't know if I've room in the hole oh there we go

So that's actually pretty decent right there but if you take this you can see that it sticks out just a little too far by just whatever that is from the hexagon see the gap there is the same as the gap right here anyway this should be

Really good and strong I don't even have it JB welded and it already holds pretty good like I say oh I feel that it's like when your glass bed rifle you get all of the gaps taken out it really does good anyway I thought that's kind of a fun

Repair and I just post a quick video of it things like how do you fix if I had that brazing rod to go around I'd have done that but I don't have it I think that probably would have broken even too it's

Just so fun that you can see the bolt where it comes through here let's punch them through there's a bunch of air bubbles in there then when I hit that the filings clicking down a lot easier to you know that you've got a lot of jb

Weld that you're going through and you buy it in the big things like this i'll leave a link in the description for the stuff but basically makes it two parts this is the metal and then this is a hardener steel hardener my biggest

Regret was not doing this right the first time my second biggest regret is that it takes so long to do you know to get this to hold like this I'm thinking probably would have been better to just replace it I have no idea where to buy

That piece that broke all I know is that I returned things better than when I bought it and that's what I'm doing so when you're mixing this stuff you can do the swirl maneuver here and just kind of get everything together get it somewhat

Homogenous and then just start folding it ideally you do not want to do this on cardboard whether it's bond or epoxy or whatever because cardboard actually absorbs some of the wider weight chemicals that are part of this and with

Those leached into the cardboard they're not in the epoxy some idea is I'm going to take this stuff and just put it in and on everything twist this down in here they can see it's catching on the threads and that's all fine and good

That's what we like so I'm gonna put it all over this for when it goes through things should be pretty strong it should be stronger than the other ones when I'm done in theory I don't know I haven't done a whole lot with this you know

Bolting pot metal back together you know get her done okay so I'm pretty satisfied with the way that looks and get this started here I just want to pack it into every little nook and cranny so that it doesn't have any

Weakness to it should be wearing gloves huh you drive this home I get that this stay put yeah that's good I'm just gonna glob it up like nobody's business it's not too too terrible to grind it's not like bondo is too much harder when

You using sandpaper this is gonna be strong I do not think you're gonna have any kind of problem with this all right well that's it I'm going to let this tack up and then take a pocket knife or a razor blade just kind of scrape that

Off get it tore this will fit on it again so it looks like this and then cut the end of the bolt off it's not going anywhere it's epoxy did just try to make one good solid piece well it's the next morning this is the way it turned out

Looks pretty slick I had to back this in and out wallet was still moist but this stuff is hard now just compare you can see that this one goes on just about all the way and put it on this side it's priced a little hot for machining it

Goes on just about all the way I think that's gonna be a good strong solid to repair with that bolt all the way in back to here that's better that's a good repair that's gonna hold try the cap fitment on it it's all over the end I

Just buzzed that down a little bit you can see that's the washer portion of the bolt it's a little bit crooked because the bolts just a little bit crooked it had to be to be able to miss this way and not create a weakness being too thin

Here I think strong it'll hold up great if it's broken when I borrowed it Bauer's return stuff better than I got it really happy doesn't it we'll do that here thanks for watching be sure to
