O/T J B Quik

Bruce Wilkinson /

I've used JB Weld for years fixing things and love the stuff. It will mend and fill holes for sanding and never gave me any trouble.

I just bought the J B Quik , sets in 4 minutes tubes. I don't know what 's in there but I had a serious allergic reaction to it. I mixed a small amount to fix something with a stick, scraped it on the item and smoothed it over. It took me 1 minute, never got any on my skin, only breathed the fumes a bit.

My eyes swelled up, I got itchy arms, had an asthma attack and felt horrid for 2 days.

I'm allergic to fish and wonder if it has fish oil in it like glues did 30 or 40 years ago.

Just thought I'd pass this on.

On top of that it is NOT gas proof like regular JB Weld is. I used it for two petcock repairs, and after a few weeks it was soft and pliable like hard chewing gum. I do not recommend it.

Yeah, Jb weld is already almost too good to be true, 5 minutes would just be too triumphant.

Re: O/T J B Quik

JB Quik and JB Waterweld are two different things, right? I've used JB Waterweld (also stuff in a tube) with a modest amount of success on tanks and such. No allergic reaction for me, though. Sorry to hear that.
