Default making a "weld"

so i just got my hookah in today but i have a little problem. it doesnt effect the performance of the hookah (althought i havent smoked it yet but it shouldnt hurt it) anyways, the hose port weld is reeeeally bad which i was expecting, its the same one KIllerB got and did a review on the "golden nugget".

the weld basically just looks bad and is not doing anything. so i would like to no what can i use to make a "weld", like is there a glue or anything.

the hose port just wobbles around in the hole...

I second the JB weld! Depending on the matierial it is made out of. You should be able to go out to any hardware store and buy a tube of JB weld. It is a putty type material that you mix together.

if it came like that from a seller then return it, you shouldnt get something broken if you paid money

ya jb weld is going to work just fine and compared to doing a correct solder on it, the jb will be easier and cleaner

i agree it should'nt be broken but i dont mind just fixing it on my own really not that big of a deal. got the jb weld but im waiting to apply it so i can see how it smokes wich it smokes really good and will smoke even better when i get it all sealed up.

other then the not so good build quality of this thing im really liking it. dare i say it smokes and purges just as well as my KM really worth the 40 bones as KillerB would say haha also loving the tangiers sized windcover

My purge valve on my KM was like that when I got it, and it twisted off when I tried to unscrew it. A lil JB weld fixed it right up!

mine was not as bad as what you are describing, but it wasnt really welded at the top, stil secure though... i just dropped some gorilla glue down on it. Worked great, but the JB weld you gto will probably be better especially since yours seems to need a little bit more intinsive care.

I love my little Mini Wheat. The welds arent the prettiest thing in the world, but its portable and smokes really well.
