    Repairing stainless steel - FDA approved epoxy?

    Just wondering if anyone knows where I could get a hold of some food safe epoxy? I need to repair a hole in a stainless steel part would like to use something that wont kill me when I vape through it.

    Probably your best bet:

    JBWeld

    From the JBWeld site:

    Stays pliable for about 30 minutes after mixing, sets in 4-6 hours, and cures fully in 15-24 hours. Like metal, J-B WELD can be formed, drilled, ground, tapped, machined, filled, sanded, and painted.

    It's water-proof; petroleum/chemical/acid-resistant; resists shock, vibration, and extreme temperature fluctuations, and withstands temperatures up to 500F (260C).

    J-B WELD is super strong, non-toxic, and safe to use. Before it sets, you can clean up with soap and water.

    +1 with the JB weld, I have used it to fill some holes in a tank, I also tested some with ejuice and it is ok.

    I got mine from Jaycar J-B Weld Epoxy - Jaycar Electronics
