hey everyone.

i have a small dilemma. i have to glue two hunks of aluminum together for my 3D class (i tried to make interlocking joints, like the darn professor said, but it just did not work... they do not fit)

does anyone know of any heavy duty glue that would hold two good sized chunks of aluminum together?

any help gets this:
a "THANK YOU" in advance!

You could try JB Weld or JB Kwick.
It's available at WalMArt etc. usually in the auto/tools section.
It's inexpensive too.

I was off to save the world....until I was distracted by something shiny.

I guess it's better to wear a pair of gloves when you do the glue work, it's more safe, you don't want to stick your hand etc.

We see the throns of the others, but we cannot see the log of timber in our eyes.

if anyone cares, i glued my piece together with JB Kwik. after i let it sit for teh full day it's supposed to sit, it seems to be holding. (i only let it sit for about 12 hours the first time i tried it.... it snapped. lol. good thing it wasn't due yet.)

so thanks for all your help. it was successful... YAY.
