Not wood related but I figure someone here will know the answer. I’ve got a stainless steel tea pot that had a plate attached to the bottom (also stainless) when it was made. The manufacturer calls it a “capsule bottom.” Anyway, the pot was allowed to boil dry and the bond between the plate and pot broke. The parts are intact and not deformed in any way but I cannot find a way to reattach the plate to the bottom of the pot. It looks like some type of adhesive was used when it was made. I can’t find anything, at least nothing reasonably priced and available in a very small quantity, that can withstand the heat of a stove.

There could be other, and maybe better, products but this is one that may work for you.

Clear silicone sealant can withstand over 600 degrees and would hold the bottom on pretty well.
Or, I would agree with the JB Weld also.
Either product would work as long as the pot does not boil dry.

Due to unavoidable non-woodworking issues I haven’t been able to get back to this until now.
Thanks everyone for the replies. I tried the JB Weld and it is working so far.

Have your say...
