Default Creating a Thermowell

Ok, I have this idea for creating a thermowell easily. But I can't find if anyone else did it on the site. I want to take a 1/2" copper tube, weld a cap on it, drill a hole in the cap, drop ball of JB weld putty into the end and stick my K thermocouple through it. Will that work?

I'm using this thermocouple from auber instruments: id=27
