Nope you wont get enough heat and it wont be concentrated in a small area for it to work.
Welding steel is a bit different to fixing water pipes!

Sikaflex? Like on a commodore?

Just hire an oxy kit if cash is a bit tight.

it'll pobably end in tears but, if you are VERY careful and use the smallest rods you can lay your hands on, lowest amperage you can on an arc welder and tack only......I have in the past but its very easy to blow holes....

Paper Mache? Clag glue? Semen? All have similar bonding properties and appear to fit the budget.
