  • Memory loss. Broken vehicle door handle weldy stuff?

    I read a post very, very, recently....like in the past 12 hours...where someone thanked someone else for "broken vehicle door handle weldy stuff"...it has a name, like W4? (Handle snapped off...uh...broke.)

    I had a chuckle, thought "who would ever need that", and I moved on. Well, I know someone that needs that information. now.
    I can't recall the thread or who posted. Hellllppppp! TIA

      Yup. That's it. Don't know where I got W4...prolly in the sheared (off) panic of the moment. Thank you Odette. Gracefully yours, Sibes...or in the current .... " ibes".

        Yes, it was JB Weld; sold pretty much everywhere; hardware, drug stores, wal mart, big grocery stores, etc.
        Two tubes; I used a piece of cardboard as a mixing tray and another piece of cardboard to mix them; smeared over both screws, filled the holes, and put around the flat part of the handle where it goes against the side of the van; shoved handle back into holes and left in place without touching for 24 hours; strong as new.

            I was thanking Paul Harvey (longtime radio announcer,and originator of "The Rest of the Story". He only advertised things that actually work and do what they say they will do. JB Weld is a very versatile product that is very effective in repairing metal and other nonporous items, including hard plastic.

              Isn't that stuff just epoxy or is it special epoxy?

                There are lots of different epoxy; all I know is that this one really works.
                Paul Harvey told about someone travelling across the country when their engine overheated and their engine block got a small crack in it. They couldn't find a replacement any where used;a nd couldn't afford a new one; they fixed it with JB weld and finisihed their trip.
