This works for me every time...anyone else, have no idea, but for me, no issues. I use Devcon 5 minutes clear epoxy. I use a 100g pad on a ROS. Sand the crap out of whatever metal you are using, wipe with alcohol...DNA is really expensive. Glue and apply pressure. Here's the little pressure and you end up with a wad of much and you squish it all of the joint. I never drill metal over 100 rpm...just no reason to. Heat is always the enemy! 1/8" and let it cool...repeat. Round off the corners so the impact of the gouge on the 90* corner is lessened...impact causes fracture and weakening. High speed, like 3k rpm and very light cuts. If you start to hear a "tap-tap-tap" you have a joint ready to let go. The rest you can trial and error.
