Pitot tube repair: 1.0 hours (time applied to “wing wiring”).
When I mounted the pitot tube (see here) I had an issue where I needed to re-tap two holes in the pitot to a bigger size. I always hated this – it’s just not elegant. So I decided to try a product called JB Weld (see here) which is a steel reinforced epoxy. I mixed a small amount and filled in the holes in the pitot I had messed up. After the epoxy cured I sanded and re-tapped the holes correctly. Seems to be working nicely.
