Has anyone a rec for a good place to buy a new lid for a pin lock keg? I had the hinge on one side of the bail break tonight while I was cleaning a few. used complete kegs when available are going for around $30 locally but if i could get a lid for half that i'd keep the keg. also have another one that rubber lid is coming off, tried a basic 'Quik-grip" clear glue that failed as soon as i washed keg with hot water. Know a better glue?

Fastac automotive trim adhesive has worked for me. I used to use it for gluing sew-up bicycle racing tires onto the rims. Holds forever.

Also maybe try something from Liquid Nails. They make adhesives for all sorts of applications.

Do you have a LHBS nearby? if they sell used cornie kegs, they'll likely have a pile of parts scavenged from kegs

I would think a local welder could do the job; it would require a TIG or MIG welder, as it is stainless.

Not that I exactly recommend it, but there is J-B Weld, an epoxy product that is surprisingly strong. Like duct tape, it ain't pretty, but it sometimes works in an emergency.

I would give it a shot with JB Weld too- like Bill said it aint pretty, but it does the job.

Lids aren't cheap so I'd take Paul's advice and see if your local shop maybe has some spares or something. A new lid costs nearly what a used keg runs.

Wow, that's cheaper than a package of two tubes of J-B Weld.

Yea, that place is a great keg parts resource. Did you read what they said about Pepsi kegs? Not news but sad. No more....

Liquid Nails has a formulation that will hold rubber to metal, according to their website.

Home Projects Repair Adhesive (LN-201)

Try Lowes or Home Depot

I used to buy 3M Fastac Trim Adhesive at an automotive paint store in town.

try a local auto body repair shop...

I've used Liquid Nails on several kegs with success.
