Charles here: Ref. How To Repair A Small Bell: POC: Gary Middleton: I use J. B. Weld. A type of Metal glue for small projects & it seems to work just fine on them. You can also paint over the liquid-jell compond after it has dried. I use it when I need to weld a half-moon eye-bolt inside a bz bell that has lost its eye-bolt from long exposure to salt water. You can purchase the G.B. Weld @ Lowes hardware stores. Best/Wishes Charles...

I am leaning towards a grey 'putty' type material that the local hardware store sells. It hardens over time once kneeded and exposed to air.
Any thoughts towards that?
I am thinking that I can more easily remove any excess, probably with a toothpick, plus the color is closer to the metal itself.
