There's a lot to be said for doing it right, but IF applied to a scrupulously cleaned surface, JBWeld can be the right solution for a long time, like 20+ years.
Heck, they seal pinholes in the cooling tubes on reactor systems with LOCTITE products, and that's considered "doing it right", so what's wrong with JBWeld? Assuming the surface you're applying it to is really clean, and it is mixed really well. And if it doesn't work...then you can take out the whole thing, hit it with a torch, and the JBWeld will come away anyhow.
