O/T -JB Weld question

Hey All,

I need to fill in a dent on something (not jeep related) and I know jb weld will do that but my question is that I want to use a dremel to sand it down flat. Basically I am trying to fill in a dent on a steel frame.

Will a dremel sand it down flat?

Thanks.

Re: O/T -JB Weld question

What attachment were you planning on using? a barrel sander would be tough to have a flat smooth surface. I'd say a orbital sander would work better. Is this just a cosmetic thing or are you expecting to get structural support out of it [img]images/icons/laugh.gif[/img] Keep in mind you need to rough up the surface that you are applying it too to gieve it better adhesion. a frame will flex and probably tend to pull the jb weld loose over time. but that's speculation.

Re: O/T -JB Weld question

its only for cosmetic purposes. Its actually my streetbike. I have a 1998 Gsxr-600. its my baby! Well, It came in touch with something and put a small dent in the frame. its so small but its really killing me. So I figured I would fill in the small shallow dent and than sand it down. Obviously its a small area so I figured I would use a dremel. I am going to borrow one but have never used one before.

If it's a small area like the ridge on a bike frame, a dremel probably will work good.

My father in law repairs his aluminum boat props with jb weld two or three times a summer. I'm sure those flex, but the jb stays on. He puts tape on one side of the blade fills in the damage, and then files it down smooth after it dries.

Re: O/T -JB Weld question

Go to the auto paint store and buy a small can of 'All-Metal'...
It doesn't fall out of frames when they flex. It's what I use to fill in the necks and such on my Harleys...
Makes for a nice, clean fill that doesn't come loose.
