JB Weld For Mounting Brackets
« on: November 21, 2005, 04:48:25 PM »
I've been trying to figure out a way to mount the uberjam 1176 switch banks as well as the 1176 pcb to the par-metal chassis without having an ugly bolt head/nut sticking up on the outside of the chassis.

My tentative solution is to use some JB Weld and some U-Brackets.  Any thought for or against?   It seems like it would be sound (rofl).

JB may work; if the metal is really clean, if it does not go on tour with the HedBangers.

Do the switches have mounting bushings? That would be the simple solution.

Weird.  I tried to post this a couple of days ago, but it gave me a database error, so I gave up and it magically appeared today.

I went ahead and used the jb weld.  It should be dry by tonight.  I'll mount the switch banks and report back.

The switch banks do not have mounting bushings.  I want to try and mount these guys without drilling holes in the front panel.  It looks cooler that way.     :thumb:

I finished my G1176 today.  Here's a (sucky)picture of the JB Weld mount.  Basically, I cleaned the metal, JB Welded a nut to the front panel and used bolts and spacers to mount the switch bank.  It seems sturdy and is working great!  I guess only time will tell...

Nice One!  JB weld is great.  I made a valve spring compressor to remove the valves from my KZ550.  Oops wrong forum....
