    I've used Loctite/Permatex p/n 14600 (Cold Weld) for many years without any problems. I have never used JB weld, but I was told this Loctite product is similar to JB Qwik Weld /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif.

    So any specific style of JB weld? They have a few different versions if I recall correctly like the different versions of RTV.

    I used JB Weld, just scuffed up the metal before hand to make sure it got a good grip.
