i didn't know where else to post this so here goes. i use found/recycled stuff in my yard/garden
and i have some metal pieces that i want to "weld" together, but i can't weld and hubby is out of town for a while, so can i use jb weld to hold them together?

JB Weld is not very strong. You may have better luck drilling holes and bolting this stuff together.

Also depending on the kind of welder you have access to some types of welders are real easy to learn. Like MIG or wire welders, with one of these I can have you welding in less than 10 minutes.

I had a class at work once about the subject. The only thing I remember is you have to weld like materials together. Like iron to iron and that type of thing otherwise the weld will be a weak point in the structure.

thanks guys, i'll try the bolting thing. we'll see, i also know my way of dealing with metal, i need more band aids... he he he if that doesn't work i'll wait on hubby to get home and have all the stuff piled up in front of where he parks.

get soft mechanics wire from the hardware store, it works great for binding things together, and it's very easy to work with, (as it's been annealed to make it soft).

okay, well putting the stuff in the way, in the area he parks failed miserably. [tears] so i'll try the mechanics wire. what i'm trying to do is make sunflowers from rebar and a farm implement that looks kinda like a throwing star(i totally forgot the name of it) its put on a tractor to drag and break up the ground. duh, i'm so forgetful, but they are adorable. i shouldn't be to hard on dh, he's got his hands full, works 12 hr shifts and on his days off he works in LA doing debri removal so i guess i'll cut him some slack. but thanks for the suggestions and i'll keep trying.
