Re: case stuffing..
This is a sore subject around here because the person who first posted the idea told people to use JB-Weld. The problem is he failed to inform people that proper surface prepeartion was critical.
Any epoxy based filler material can and will fail unless the base material is properly cleaned and degreased prior to trying this questionable idea. Yes, I'm sure people have tried and used it but you can be sure they knew the hazards and were prepared for them and knew how to use the product.
Do a lot of research before you attempt it and be sure to read the label of any material you plan to use and follow the manufacturer's advice on surface prep.
