Default JB Weld

I'm installing robart struts to electric retracts (90 degree rotating)..would JB Weld work or is it best to drill and tap to use grub screws?

JB Weld might work at first. But eventually it would give way. How soon is anyone's guess! Drill and tap is the best. And maybe back that up with some JB Weld?

Throw that JB weld as far away from your workshop as possible.

I'll go the old school way of drilling and tapping the struts and filing a flat into the connecting pin of the retracts. I was thinking JB Weld might hold.

Thanks

PS:Funny that Robart recommends using JB Weld or silver solder to keep the bushing in place.
