Adhesive suitable for welding?

I'm wondering if there's some sort of adhesive like JB Weld or somesuch that is suitable for using on parts that are to be welded. I've got all of my misc. mounts & brackets that Framjeep is going to weld onto my frame for me and I'd like to position them prior to his arrival so that he can just start laying beads instead of me getting in the way to measure, grind, etc. The main issue is that another Jeeper fabbed up some really nice replacement body mount brackets for me, so obviously placement of these is pretty critical and needs to be based upon the location of the original mounts. TIA

Those big C-clamp looking Vise grips work great for that. Or even cheap c-clamps will do, and you won't have a mess of stuff everywhere.

Re: Adhesive suitable for welding?

my understanding is that it wouldn't work with the JB weld. I have only used it a few times but its not steel so it wouldn't be a good idea to try to weld on top of it. I would think that make more of a mess than its worth. Unless you just put a little hear and there to hold the body mount and weld around the JB weld. Than grind the JB weld off before finishing the weld.

Honestly, I can hardly believe that I am trying to answer "JeepSkates" question. I have been watching your project since 1997 (when I bought my TJ) and think you and some other guys are amazing with the things you guys come up with. Good luck on your project.

Re: Adhesive suitable for welding?

A clamp would work best. I have heard of people using solder and/or brazing rod to do the same thing. Solder is nice because as you weld, it melts away and you can continue welding. It'd just be a PITA to get it to adhere with that much mass. How about normal C-clamps? Even better, clamp it in place and mark it up well, then just align the reference marks.

Re: Adhesive suitable for welding?

[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] How about using a small drill and some spring pins for "locating"? If you got one pin in there, then the rest would be just a matter of twisting the piece to get it "normal" for Dean to weld it.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] OR....you can even match-mark the stuff to the frame with a center pinch or a scratch awl.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img] We used to have this incredibly powerful magnet that i sometimes used to put behind a frame member to hold a bracket in place on the outside. The problem with that was that the magnet picked up every piece of grinder shavings or cuttings within ten feet and it was tough to get it off.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]

Re: Adhesive suitable for welding?

Thanks, JW. I'm still learning things just like everyone else...there's always some new twist or something I haven't stuck my hands into yet. That's part of what keeps this whole thing interesting.

Re: Adhesive suitable for welding?

I guess I'll stop at Menard's on the way home (good local chain for cheap stuff) and compare prices between c-clamps and the spring-loaded clamps (can probably find those in a bulk pack). Probably need at least 10 of them...should be enough material on the flanges for the clamps to catch on. Thanks.

Re: Adhesive suitable for welding?

Thanks. I've got a couple of c-clamps and one of those vise-grip clamps. Guess I'll compare the prices on c-clamps verses spring-loaded clamps and go with the cheaper of the two. Thanks.

Re: Adhesive suitable for welding?

I like CJDave idea, also consider drilling small hole and using small selftapping screws. you can weld up the scews when you weld the pieces on. Just make sure you drill your holes in nuetral areas of the frame, etc.

Re: Adhesive suitable for welding?

If you use a magnet you can stick it in a zip-lock baggy. Then when you remove it you just turn the baggy inside out and wala- all the shavings are in the bag.
