Yup, it's another heat stick thread. I went with this build but went for the L shaped pipe instead of straight: http://www.3d0g.net/brewing/heatstick
I diluted the JB-weld to make it quite liquid so I could por it down the tube and it would flow easily into the nooks and crannies of the L pipe and heating element. I noticed as I added mroe acetone, that the JB Weld started to look almost chunky, with distinct grey and black dots (as if it didn't mix...and I mixed that bitch up hard). I checked some spots on the side of the tube where there is only a small spec of JB Weld and it still isnt dry (24 hrs later) nevermind the pool that is sitting at the bottom of my pipe.
Did I over do the acetone, or does it just mean I will have to wait longer for it to dry. I am in no rush, so I don't mind waiting...but I don't want to wait on something that I doomed in the first place.
edit: I forgot to mention that I did coat the heating element electrical parts (and connected wires) with a healthy amount of non-diluted JB Weld. I let it dry for 24 hrs, than poured the diluted JB Weld down the tube. I DO NOT PLAN ON JB WELDING ANY SEAMS OR ANYTHING ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE STICK (if I can help it...if I find out my thinned JB Weld is compromised, I will probably seal the living hell out of the outside coupler that holds the element to the pipe.)
