Default aluminum repair

I'm looking to repair a crack in my aluminum rim and wondering what options I have other than a re-riggin my welder for aluminum. I was gonna try some loc-tite epoxy for now, ya know the double tube stuff, but I seem to recall some stick that you can sorta braze with..
Any suggestions other than paying $75 for someone to weld it?

you can kinda see the line circled. it'll slowly leak air out so I'm filling it up every couple days. I didn't know it was there at first cause the PO used stick-on weights that covered the crack and it didn't leak then.
