I used it to repair the case on my IBM PS/2 Model 80. One of the
mounting "towers" that hold the power supply in place broke before I got
it. The fibrous plastic piece with the threaded insert was still
present, but un-attached, so I used JB-Weld to re-secure it. Worked
great!! :-) I assume it is still in place. I haven't pulled the power
supply since so I don't know for sure, but I suspect it is still

It's amazing that the same stuff I used to plug a hole in the intake
manifold of a 2.2 liter Chrysler engine is the same stuff I used to fix
my computer :-)
