plate setter

edited 6:10PM in EggHead Forum
I just broke one of the feet of my plate setter. Is there a way to repair, a glue or something, or do I just have to buy a new one? What does one cost for a med. egg?

  • I did the same thing...used J-B Weld to repair...has worked fine for 4+ years... There are other similar products that have worked well also...just make sure you are dealing w/ something that will go the temp limit....good luck

  • TC,
    Before buying a replacement, try using JB Weld. Some people on here have been successful using it to fix plate sitters, fire rings, and even the dome top.

    Careful with the temps - from the JB Weld site:

    Properties (psi)
    Tensile Strength: 3960
    Adhesion: 1800
    Flex Strength: 7320
    Tensile Lap Shear: 1040
    Shrinkage: 0.0%
    Resistant to: 500° F

    Mechanics -- you can use J-B WELD with confidence. It is designed for safe, reliable, permanent repairs in engine compartments and heated environments up to 500° F. It's strong as steel and impervious to water, gasoline, chemicals, and acids. Working with J-B WELD is quick, easy, and convenient -- and saves you time, work, and money!

    Not recommended for use on manifolds, exhaust systems, and other engine components which normally operate at temperatures above 500° F.

    Thanks & yes I saw that. Did the first repair with Gorilla glue and fell off first time. Since have done 5 or 6 Pizza cooks at 550 to 600 and no problems yet. So far so good but best bet is to replace This is a spare so tried the JB & it's working great.
