Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ToddB Proven contact adhesive but the fumes!
There's not much to say about contact adhesive. For certain jobs it's the perfect product. The quintessential project would be laminate and that's what I used it for. I built an assembly table for my workshop and used this to glue laminate to the top.
My only complain is the fumes, and boy are they strong!
As another reviewer noted, you get one change with any contact adhesive. It's the nature of the beast. Once you lay the top piece down, you cannot move it.
Dapwood makes a low VOC version of this. If I didn't have a gallon of this left I'd say I'd try the low VOC next time. I'd love to know if it's as strong and if it's truly stink free, or just what. You simply cannot use this in your house if you plan to live in that space immediately after. This is much better applied and dried outside. Worse case, applied outside and dried in a garage, etc.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EricG Great for more than laminates
I've been using this product for years on countless projects, It is one of several adhesives I always have on hand. Although I think that contact adhesives were first introduced for gluing laminates to counter-tops, and I've used this product for that, it has proved useful for many other tasks including gluing the tapered seam of the leather drive belt on my 1941 South Bend metal lathe, That has to be one of the most demanding applications.
I make sure that I always have Weldwood contact cement in my shop.

No matter what the glue job is, you can trust Weldwood to make a quality product. I have used this glue on every type of material you can imagine for many years. For the price you pay buy the gallon bucket for economy of use. Seal the top with a rubber mallet and it keeps almost forever. I have used it in laying laminate counter tops, used for fabric in upholstering, and even ceramic items. There are lots of glue products for specialty item but you cannot beat the original cement.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by to149er Worked for me!
I used this product to apply new laminate directly to my older laminate countertops. I cut the sheets to a rough fit and applied the glue to the counterop and the sheet, waited 30 minutes, did one more coat, and installed 30 minutes later. The smell on this stuff is SOOO strong. Even with air freshners and open windows you will still get a hint of a smell 2 days later. But it works great and I redid my countertops for $60 instead of $600.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by adele0283 Very easy to use, good bonding
I recommend this item for anyone with a job that needs a good, tight bond. I used it on some tin backsplash tiles that kept falling off the wall after using a cheaper adhesive. I also used it to secure a loose clay tile on the threshold of an outside doorway, and it held perfectly.

This cement does a great job of gluing thing together. I like it for attaching laminate. Just remember, you can not adjust the position of the pieces once you put them together.
