I use the more expensive "time-serts" which allow you to remove the bolt/stud many times over if needed.Good luck.

You ask for an epoxy,
not a mechanical fastener
The two part epoxy I trust is JB Weld.
The other good choice is a product by "Loctite"
Specifically named "Stud and bearing mount"
This is an anaerobic compound that cures only
in an area where ther is no oxygn present.
It will fill small gaps and hold the stud securely
Hope this helps

... The two part epoxy I trust is JB Weld...
I will second that as an epoxy to use.
... helicoil is a permanent fix if you intend to never remove that bolt again.
I am confused... If his came from almost anyone else I would call BS!! How do you figure that you never could/should remove the fastener? I do it all of the time. Am I doing some ignorant russian roulette? Truly an honest Q, not a challenge...

I can't understand exactly what you're getting at with your typos,grammar,etc. Is this some kind of whack at me for suggesting a timesert?Sorry that I didn't suggest an epoxy.Timeserts blow away helicoils.Next?
Calm, please. No insult intended. I am too asocial to bother insulting people who deserve it, let alone someone who goes above and beyond to help others. You are amongst the people on USMB that I "listen" to carefully. Nothing but respect.
I have never heard of timeserts, so I have no knowledge or opinion about them. Perhaps they are not marketed on the US west coast? I don't know. But I would like to learn about them.

Has stuff for in the hole, and a release agent for on the stud/bolt/nut, which can be removed and re-torqued after allowing full cure.
And JB-Weld is good too, as Skip said.
Have used Heli-Coils in the past, but they can lock onto the bolt as well as the threads of the hole, making removal darn near impossible. Which is a good thing for a stud, I guess.
Never heard of Timeserts myself, either. Curious here on them..........
