Default modding my dilda, jb weld or epoxy?

this seems like the place to ask..

the stock dilda driver was held to the heat sink with an "epoxy" that looked like a dark jb weld to me, and could be removed with a knife. it seemed more like jb weld than normal epoxy because I dont think I could have cut through epoxy that easily (I've tried cutting epoxy but it ended with 4 stitches in my thumb... thats another story though
would jb weld work for attaching the new driver to it or should I use some two part epoxy?
thx for any info

once I find my darn camera charger I'll post pics of my mod...

I did a test with some cheap speaker wire, made a little blob of jb weld and stuck two pieces of wire in it about 1/4" apart and it shows about 50M ohm resistance between the two wires... is that bad? haha..

Default Re: modding my dilda, jb weld or epoxy?

on my little trip to the store I bought some "super glue" brand instant set epoxy (two part) along with the jb weld (I needed jb anyways...)

god damn they mean it. it hardened before I could get the wires in properly (to test it for current)
I'm used to airplane (model) grade 5 minute that sets in 20 minutes... haha

Yeah, the JB weld has metal powder mixed w/ epoxy, it better for patching a cracked exhaust manifold.

Walmart sells something called "QuickSteel" (its in the automotive section) which works pretty well. Its a high temperature 2 part putty which you must kneed together with your fingers and then apply. Dries hard in about an hour.
