JB Weld Seam Chip Fix - 05-16-2019, 05:37 AM

the professional who set this table up before i bought it had this slate seam chip filled with wax. i repaired it correctly using JB Weld. below are the before and after pics. i also repaired two other smaller areas but this one was the worst.

Looks like a great idea. I'll bet the pros are studying it right now. I wonder what they think?

Hmmmm....what do I think, as a Pro about JB Weld....well, it seems it's not all that strong, seeings how it couldn't keep either one of you trolls stuck on AZB....see you again under your new NEXT screen names, shouldn't be much longer now!

Slatemate,

That sure is a good looking repair. Is JB Weld as tough as bondo? Is it fairly easy to shape? Does it shrink or expand over time?

It seems to me that it may be helpful to others here at AZB. I, for one, would like to know more about how you went about preparing the surface and about how you worked off the excess.

Would you consider making an instructional video on how you did the job?

If so, it would be great to post it here.

Best regards,

BOXCAR

Well, I'll be darned. That's too bad. He's got the makings of a pretty good mechanic.

Have you used any of the dental products for repair? My slates had a few chunks missing near the joint pins...someone probably lifted when he should have pulled...and 1/8 inch deep and wide scratches or gouges up to 2 feet long from being stacked with exposed screws from the other slate backing wood.

I read somewhere about a dental die stone mix that was fast curing, good adhesion, low shrink and saw some slate repairs done with it.

I contacted the company on the website and they actually sent free samples that were more than I needed...and I had a lot of repairs to make. You mix with water, stir, and work fast because it sets pretty quick. I put it on with a wood tongue repressor and smoothed it level with a razor blade. In most cases no sanding was necessary since it is so smooth and low shrink. It is rock hard, doesn't cast off dust like bondo can and adheres well to slate. There are similar products aimed at the people who do granite/quartz countertop repair but the dental die cast material is priced much better and easier to find.

I found later that Muellers actually used to sell it for table slate as well. They listed it as a seam filler. I wouldn't use it for that.

Bondo has worked just fine for me, been using it for about 38 years now.

Most people who tend to over think things, tend to over complicate things as well.

The JadeStone when hard has a compressive strength of 14,000 psi which just happens to be the same as slate. Body filler is fine for a screw hole outside the playing field or in a narrow slit but is fairly soft. A big repair out in the center of a slate where a jumped ball could land is maybe better done with something harder.

Then comes the problem of people using it in the seams of the slate.....now what are the seams going to look like after being filled with that? Are they still going to come apart just as they do with bondo??
