BillskiFactory processes and materials under better control than we can manage in home shops.
My point is that the materials and procedures to successfully bond aluminum and carbon are available now, and being done by private individuals in compliance with any applicable law or regulation. As to individuals, there skills and prior experience ,their shops, and budgets, now ,always and forever is unknowable.

If a particular type of bonded joint has a particular failure mode, what?, every kind of bonded joint is exactly the same, get the procedure right or it fails at an inconvenient time and place. The wobbly discussions here about which glue to use in wood construction are far more likely to get someone in trouble.
