    Does any body know where I can buy some really strong glue. That holds objects at more that 600°C without a problem.

    The kind those used to adhere the heating element at the bottom of water boiling kettles.

    Find out what glue they used to stick the tiles on to the space shuttle.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Space_Shuttle_thermal_protection_system

    According to this article, they used RTV silicone.

    One more thing I forgot. It needs to transfer heat very effectively.
    Something like thermal adhesive used in electronics but at higher temperatures.

    Try standard gel CA. 30 minute drying time. If the shipping wasn't so expensive I'd send you some of my marine grade mighty puddy(solid epoxy), otherwise I'd try gorrilla glue, goop, or check for different thermal pastes at mouser.

    Ace here does carry Gorilla Glue. It is a brand but I doubt it will hold up to 600C. What on earth are you trying to glue?

    Are you trying to glue that Yanmar back together? :)

    Hell you can get a new 936 pen for $12-$30 new. Or if you got the money get a 903 pen with the element in the tip. The 939 setup is the bees neez. Even a CC to set and hold temps from unruly workers. If you didn't know you can swap pens out for most older models, and newer models. A 936 iron will plug in to a 929, 936,937,939, etc.. Its just a standared 900 pen. a 903 pen is the 939 model pen thats a lil nicer and tips are way more expensive, but their compatable.

    The pens actually hold their value too since they still make the 936 for the hobby market. When ever I have a chance to pick up 903 tips for $10 or under I grab em, or any time i can pick up a new pen for $10-$20 I grab it. Its like money in the bank. If I need it I use it. If I need the money I post it buy it now and it sells in 1 day.

    There's a stuff called quick steel. it's a putty, you knead it, and stick it. It's advertised to be as strong as a weld, and high temp resistant. They say you can use it to repair an engine block. I used in the construction of my ethanol distiller.
