JB weld might have its place but this isn't one of them. It is a poor man's Devcon. It will not stand up to the rigors of vibration and stress and that has been proven time and again. Yes you can drill and tap it but you can do that with Plastic Wood. That doesn't mean it will stand up to the vibrations and stress from a 2 cycle engine. But like everything else in this hobby...if it works for you, then go for it. I just don't want it around me or my bikes. I prefer something that I know will last. JB Weld isn't one of them. The product you mentioned, 'Liquid Steel' is a Devcon product, still made and still available. And yes, it is a good product. They also make liquid titanium and is good for high heat applications.
