I just got a 440 carbon rod w/ titanium ends for the tail of my sceadu 50 and forgot I do not have JB Weld. could I use 30 minute Epoxy ?

Thanks,
Roberto.

Epoxy will hold up fine.

Just roughen up the carbon rod before gluing.

definitely take some sandpaper to the inside of the
tube, then clean it w/ alcohol and use the 30
minute stuff. I usually wrap tape around the end
since the end will want to pop out while the
epoxy is setting

I've always used gap-filling CA to glue the titanium ends on. And I always clean the inside of the CF rod with brake-clean before gluing. It's worked fine for me.

rough it up... clean it with alcohol... JB weld it... works great.
Dont forget to tie the ends up somehow... tape or the like, other wise it will heat up and push the ends out.
I dont one end one night then the other and tape it with 200mph tape.

Can't speak for the epoxy, I suppose it will work ok, but the JB Weld will definitiley hold the ends in place for ever and ever!
