I'm securing metal together without welding and currently using hose clamps but they are a bit weak for my intended application. Is there a stronger alternative for securing metal together without welding or brazing?

Obviously exhaust clamps

what are bolts? dumbass.
>>
>>2506517
there are some surprisingly strong adhesives available
>>
>>2506517
Add epoxy into the equation.
>>
>>2506517
wrap some thin sheet metal around it, then put hose clamps or exhaust clamps on it.

My assumption is that he doesn’t want to put holes in them. It would be nice if he explained what he was building, but comfy screwless fastener thread is good also.

The check valve on my sump pump needs to be replaced, and has these hose clamps on. The problem is it's too rusted to unscrew. What tool should I use to cut it off?
>>
>>2508636
You can just crush the screw body and pull it off. The band should fall off after that
>>
>>2506517
Brazing is usually cheap to do with a mapp gas torch.
>>
>>2508992
Thank you. Sounds like I should use pliers or something.
>>
>>2508636
Is it slamming loudly or simply not 'checking' anymore?
Mine works good usually but sometimes sounds like a car door getting slamed shut.
>>
>>2506517
I use these on my fucking desk chair because the gas pumps are always breaking in them.
>>

Well, it's been doing it for years, but it slams loudly and sprays water. I just wrapped an ace bandage around it eventually. Now my pump won't shut off on its own, so I'll need to take it off anyways when I replace the pump. I'm sure it goes without saying, but the reason the screws are so rusted is because they've been wet for almost a decade.
>>
>>2506517
Just use more hose clamps
>>
>>2508636
Tin snips, or take pliers and twist the screw body until it comes apart.

Apply a dollop of silicone caulk over the screw head, this will keep it from rusting. When you want to remove it just peel the silicone off.
>>
>>2510297
>silicone caulk
Good idea, thanks for this.
>>
>>2510297
>>2510299
silicone caulk is corrosive to steel you fucking numb nuts. You will have to get neutral cure silicone. If you want to go this route. Or just paint it.

Just use stainless hardware and put a good quality anti seize on it. Tef gel is the best shit on the market.

I've done this with old rubber floor matting, was surprising good. Took some adjusting.

>. It would be nice if he explained what he was building,

Then it wouldn't be good B8. OP wins.
