"And now the rest of the story..." JB Weld to the rescue again: I've an
*old* machine with a pin hole in a valve. No replacement parts being
available & the shop too busy making money for me to drag a master machinist
aside to make me a 'one off', I fell back on the old standby - and JB Weld
came through for me again.

My favorite example: Friends & I were wing shooting in the 80's & the recoil
of a 12 GA broke one guys false teeth. Being the avid shooter he was he went
to his truck, dug out his toolbox, & pulled out the JB Weld & fixed his
chompers on the spot. By the end of the day he was able to enjoy dinner with
the rest of us.

I've even heard of people using the stuff to repair eroded mating surfaces
on the aluminum part of Gaggia boilers4.

A variant of the material was used as bondo for ships in drydock. I
always loved to watch the way it ground just like steel -- sparks and
all (as I said -- a variant).

Trying to swap the fan from one PII motor to another (an impossible
task) I had to snap the plate off the fins. JB Weld to the rescue,
sort of: it held for about 10 roasts.

to fix that, you resurface the boiler face, not apply goo to it.
