Default Building a hood

Has anybody used J B weld on alluminum and is it safe after it's cured. Trying to come up with an idea to seal the corners in the drip edge.

Thanks, Fred

Corners flex and the JB Weld might not. I used GOOD silicone from Napa. As far as safe its incidental contact.t Even better it might never contact the sap/syrup.

JB Weld makes a water weld product as well. You can find it in any hardware store. It comes in a stick you have to knead to mix the stuff. It says right on the package drinking water safe.
