JB Weld might hold it for a while

I got a nipple from an old pipe and TIG welded it on mine. JB Weld will break in time. If I had to do it again, I'd probably silver solder it instead.

just get the losi RE11 or 10 pipe one of them is the same as the 2050 it costs like 60$ and you save yourself the hassle of fixing and stress of hoping the nipple doesn't fall back off at the wrong time.

I use a micro-torch and an Alumiweld rod.
Make sure that you use a stainless steel
wire wheel on your Dremel tool to prep the
area. Here is a link to the Alumiweld rod.

Yes, it works great Stubbs. But I have been torch
welding/brazing for years. You should practice using
this product to weld on some thin aluminum items before
laying any heat on your $130+ nitro pipe. Care should
be taken to properly hold the items that your welding
together,before you begin welding. Also, always wear
eye protection and gloves that will keep your hands from
getting burned. Use only as much heat as it takes to get
the rod to flow and make proper seal around the nipple.
