Yeah... I have seen it. It does nice repairs. I also know Caswellplating.com carries a version of it.

I am good with surface repairs using that stuff on wheels if necessary to get them looking good again... Structurally I'd be wary (for a rotating mass). Otherwise I'd give it a shot and maybe do some experimentation with it for my particular application. I know a few Powder coaters that use it for wheel curb rash. There's also a product (I can't remember if the stuff you posted was it, but...) that is great for repairing pot metal as well. Yep... went and got more detailed on the site you posted... It does Pot metal too...

At $29 a pound it had better be damn good.

Thanks. I was trying to figure out how to say this.

My brother tipped me off on this stuff. For the time being, I'll stick with TIG /MIG for serious stuff. I agree with SCOTTRODS it is probably fine for cosmetics where value gained by the use exceeds the cost of the product.
