plate setter

edited 11:35PM 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.

  • My daughter shipped me a platesetter because I got tired of waiting for the local dealer. Arrived with two broken legs. JB Weld and clampped togeather for 24 hrs. So far no problems and have taken it to 450 temp. :whistle:

    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.
