ducttape it

the two things in a tool box:

Duct tape-for things that move that are not supposed to

WD40-for things that dont move that are supposed to

if that doesnt work buy a new one or take it to a professional

safe? probably remember that there was never a weld, those are pinned. I wouldnt build it because of the work involved. just get something new. Chances are there are some wicked flat spots and you will be busting spokes every ride.

If i saw that on a wheel already built i'd still run it.
