Exhaust camshaft question

Theoretically if someone's on a really really really tight budget and they snapped their exhaust camshaft in half and fixed it with some good ol' JB WELD would the camshaft still work?

If JB gives out you still have an interference engine, but perhaps you'll get lucky... your call man, but if funds are tight i'd consider hitting a junkyard and have another go of removing/installing an exhaust cam
