Electric oil heater repair


Not sure where to post this, but hopefully I can get some useful advice.

I picked up a fairly new looking electric oil heater. It looks like a radiator.

The only thing wrong with it is that it has a small pin hole in the side. When it heats up, the oil bubbles out the hole.

Would jb weld work to repair it or would it need to be welded. I do have access to a welder that my dad has.
