radiator repair


I've done several repairs to my single pipe steam radiators with JB weld. Clean off all paint and loose debris. I used my roto-tool to rough up the area around the repair and tooled the JB smooth before it hardened. I've got single-pipe steam and have had no leaks from any of my repairs with this.
