What is the absolute strongest epoxy you've ever used?

We had some stuff at work called "liquid shim". It was used to both fill the void between two pieces of metal (magnesium) and provide a bond. It was a two part epoxy that when set was actualy machinable, once set we would drill through it and install a bolt. What's the strongest you've ever used?

When I was working construction we used this stuff to glue anchors into the concrete ceilings. Rotor hammer a hole, put this capsul of epoxy in it, then drive the anchor in with a hammer. We would then hang huge air handlers and such from them.

My second choice would be my wife's chocolate fudge but we don't want to go there, do we! :lol:

Chocolate fudge? I don't know if I would have said that out loud!?!?!?!

:shock:

I used liquid shim in the AF occasionally for repairs. Good stuff. Used more of it building airplanes at Boeing though. Drill it, cut it whatever you need to do.

Viper,
Ever heard of "Velodur Alumabond?"

You can glue an F-16 together with that s**t!
Well that's what this liquid shim $hit was. We had to replace all the leading edge flap rotary actuators 'cause of a time change. The support mounts were put in place with "liquid shim". It would get me to the exact elevation of the mount 'cause the excess would ooze out and we would trim it off with a die grinder. Then once set up we'd drill though it and install a 10/32 bolt. That $hit machined like 'luminum. I either need some of that or a fudge recipie.

The command servo or the whole PDU?
No it was the rotary actuaters themselves. Time change due to assemetry brake failure. Command servo or PDU, either one was a royal PIA. Whatever engineer designed the PDU musta caught a crew chief screwing his wife and decided to get even with the SOB!! :lol:

That PDU is a nightmare...

I rebuilt those when I was a depot worker at McClellan in pneudralics.
There's like 1800 parts inside there :shock:
