The combination of screws and JB Weld will give me the peace of mind that those covers are staying put no matter what.

That is my worry as well. We'll see how it holds up though. The pizza pans cost a whopping $3.50 each or something like that. If I loose one (and don't notice it) its not the end of the world.

It is too bad I don't have a way to weld aluminum... Hmm, I wonder about perhaps brazing them?
