View Full Version : Glue Advice Needed

Once again I call on the mass experience and acumen in The Bilge.
We have a nice little enameled, cast iron pot that I use for making rice. It has a wooden handle that is drilled and slips over a projection from the rim of the pot. The projection is ~ 1/2" in diameter and about 11/2" long, plain, bare cast iron.
The problem is the "slip" you can pull the handle completely off.
Since the pot heats up, epoxy is out.
The hope is that the glue would also strengthen the handle since it is drilled out a lot to accommodate the protrusion.
Thanks in advance

JB weld or another high temperature epoxy should work.

Make a ferrule and fit it like the handle on a hoe (or a file, etc) no adhesive.

Has a ferrule, which I am saving
I was thinking a slurry of gasket cement and sand

If the shank is 1/2 inch you could drill and tap it then use a through bolt, that as well as fitting it tight with the ferrule.
(But - I might be more inclined to just get a different pot).
