comment I want to weld or braze the pedal to the crank arm, but what metals are they?
@Rider_X: I don't think I have ever seen a bike with washers on the pedals. Maybe it is only used on high end bikes?

Very interesting. I always assumed the threading was "the other way" to prevent it from unscrewing over time. In my experience it takes so much force to unscrew a pedal, sometimes a vice is needed, but I guess that is different for new and well kept bikes. I hope fixie owners are aware of this.

Assuming it is is steel and aluminium. It is not possible to weld, but it is possible to braze. However, that is not an easy process either, so I will surrender and find a replacement. Steel-aluminium brazing technique is described in (interesting reading): weldingweb.com/…

After some googling, it seems that many people have had bad experiences with epoxy, when trying to fix my problem. There is no grip in the threading here, which makes it even less likely to succeed. So I will not try epoxy.
