Or, any other type of metal welding, according to this article.

In my lifetime, I hope. richg99

Looking forward to buying this stuff at Home Depot!

Welding creates so many thermal expansion problems.

Well, we know that we have strong glues. Many pictures of split wood fittings, where the wood let go before the glue did, convinces me of that.

Now, these guys have come up with a way to add TONS of glue surface to METAL. Can't wait, though I will probably be dead and gone before you can buy it at Home Depot. Ha Ha richg99
