Does anyone know how to repair a crack in a metal drainpipe?

The whole reason for the selfsufficientish website was to offer a place where anyone can ask, HOW DO I...? So who knows why it has taken us so long to have a HOW DO I? section, but here it is. So if you want to know how to do anything selfsufficientish then here is the place to ask.

Depends if you can get to the crack. Over here they have some two part filler stuff that you can get from the car part shops. the chap next door used it to fix his cast iron radiatior, it goes off like metal.

The stuff you want for this kind of job (assuming, as merlin says, you can get at it) is JB Water Weld... Available here, here, and doubtless others. I haven't used it myself, but I've used other JB Weld epoxy products, and they do exactly what they claim.
