Subject: JB weld set up time



Ripley, Ontario Canada
I just used some JB weld to keep the fan from sliding on the shaft in Mom's dryer. How long will it take to set up (the package is long gone just have the tubes). Plastic fan had a steel keeper on the end but it broke off, and now the fan can slide on the shaft and was hitting the housing, made an awful noise.......

Thanks

Just used some JB weld yesterday to put a fin back on a cast aluminum turbine that drives a traveling irrigation gun. Package says 15 hours before putting the repaired object back into service.

As a general rule I agree with 24hrs at room temperature. In cooler conditions it might help to put a heat lamp on it., but not too close. There is a quicker curing formula of JB available. I don't know about it.

Don't know your application for sure, but I do know that JB Weld WILL NOT stick to plastic. I've tried many times to use it on plastic material and it appears like it sticks, but you can chip it off right down to the original plastic material. It doesn't matter if I sand it or whatever, it just doesn't adhere. I think there might be a JB Weld for plastic now but am not for sure. If you are just using it as a stop on the metal shaft, you should be fine.

As others have said 24 hours for full strength unless you have JB Quik which sets up in 5 minutes and I think full strength in 6 hours but it isn"t as strong as the original JB Weld.

Thanks I will tell her she can't use the dryer till tomorrow. The JB weld doesn't actually have to stick to the plastic, it just has to stick to the steel shaft to keep the fan from sliding off and hitting the front of the dryer.

...For jobs like that I've found that its worth having the JB Weld "stik" product around - you cut a piece of the 2 part putty off the log and knead it together - I think it has a working time of 5 minutes - & sets up within 2 hrs...

...Being a putty its a lot easier to work with - not sure of its strength rating.... its embarrassing, but it held our air seeder manifold together the first year we got it until we could get a replacement....

Heard South Ont was having a go round with freezing rain?? we got hit with a fair blizzard yesterday....

Not much of anything happening in Extreme Southern Ontario. Rained a bunch on the weekend, enough to take the frost out of the ground and tile were running, so very little ponding in wheat fields. Its cooled off again today, few flurries floating around .
