I too thought about using some JB Weld, must be that Southern thing in us
(lol). Instead, get a 2 by 4 piece of wood and a hammer. Put the stove on
the pavement or other solid ground. Place the 2 by 4 on top of the stove.
Hit the wood with the hammer. Don't hit the stove directly with the hammer
or you'll end up crushing it. The 2 by 4 and hammer sealed all of the
stoves I made. You'll have to give it a 1/2 dozen good solid hits to seal
it up. Inspect the top between hits and aim towards the edge which is
highest. Good Luck
