That's an option that I'm looking at as well. I think it will come down to a cost & safety comparison. What would you use weldon?

yup Weld-On
you wont need 16 ozs but i dont know if they come smaller
plastic-weld will work too but may not be as strong a bond. check out the local hobby store if the hardware store doesn't have it.

If you put off what you can do today until tomorrow it will never get done cause tomorrow never comes. It's always today.
