    Metal2Metal Glue?!?

    If I need to attache two pieces of aluminum (for custom case modifications) what are my options except for welding? Is there a glue that would be about as strong? Or what other options I got?

    Thank you

    I just used some JB weld on some aluminum and worked a lot better then I was thinking it would. I used a little sand paper on the surface 1st and it stuck good.

    I've used regular old epoxy, but JB weld would be better for all metal joints.

    Any epoxy will work but make sure to scratch up and clean the surfaces for best adhesion. Body shops glue on panels now instead of welding them.

    JB Weld would work great. I have used it plenty in the past. Just make sure to get the areas clean and slightly roughed up as suggested and then allow plenty of setup time before you go messing with it as tempting as it is. Give it extra time even. It can then be sanded or filed and then painted if you like. That stuff gets very hard.
