  • Permanently Attach Rebar Inside Galv Female Coupler

    Since I don't have access to a welder, could I use something like NP1, Liquid Nails or silicone to bond the 1/2" diam rebar inside one end of the 1/2" galvanized female threaded coupler? It would have to be weatherproof, as it would be exposed to the elements. If not, I am welcome to suggestions.

    Thanks!

    May we ask what you need this for? Might help give the correct method of attaching.

      It is a complicated application, but I am using it as a bloom shading device. I P/U several doz of those thin 1.5' x 2' corrugated plastic campaign signs post-Nov 2008 election. I reinforced the underside longitudinally with 1/2" strips of cypress and I want to mount it on the rebar by using the coupler with a 4" x 1/2" threaded galv rod sandwiched with 3" x 3" square washer plates and a 1/2" terminal nut at the top. One washer plate will rest on the top of the coupler, then the sign will rest of that first bottom washer plate, the other washer plate will rest on top of the sign and the terminal nut will hold everything in place. The threaded rod is to go through the sign, by drilling a matching hole 3-4" from the end of the campaign sign. The rebar is what will enable me to adjust the height of the device depending on the height of the bloom above the ground. Once complete, I intend to position the campaign sign 6-12" above the bloom to shield it from direct sunlight, minimizing the accumulation of nocturnal condensation on the bloom, preventing the sun from bleaching out the color and slowing down the bloom maturation process, enabling the bloom to remain longer on the bush thus increasing its size much akin to a past-term infant in the womb. This is going to be my prototype, as I am unsure if there will too much sail area and wind resistance for the device to work.

      I hope I didn't bore you with details!

            epoxy of some type I would think would be better that the other adhesives,

            but I would think taking to a welding shop or even a High school industrial arts shop, would be better to weld than to glue,

              Epoxy is a good choice as BHD recommended.
              Maybe you can work in some other material like aluminum, copper, or PVC.

                Thanks for the reply Rose. Without welding them together, 5 minute epoxy should be your next best choice.
