Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by Evan How to join steel to wood? Epoxy.
I wasn't sure how the whole project was going to go -- steel hairpin legs onto an old library card catalog. There wasn't enough wood to drill holes.
So, I used some Gorilla Glue Epoxy and some shorter-than-I-would-have-otherwise-used wood screws to act as clamps. The cabinet is heavy and the hairpin legs aren't self-supporting.
Worked perfectly. There was a little time to wiggle things into perfect position, and honestly I mixed the epoxy on the steel surface rather than in the plastic tray. It was fine.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by ArizonaHawg Great epoxy!
The Gorilla Glue epoxy does not foam, providing an easy to work experience. It worked great on a pair of broken sunglasses. Now anyone who has tried to glue these modern plastics knows that most glues just do not work. Gorilla Glue Epoxy worked fine, though! You can see the break in the photos below. The only inconvenience was holding the rounded frame for the 5-minute set time.
I am looking forward to using it to "fill" splits and cracks in some mesquite wood for a frame project.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by hillgang Love the separated tube container.
This is the best epoxy I've tried. The syringe type dispenser works great and makes mixing the two ingredients simple. What I like most is the fact that you can close it up and use it at a later time. Just be sure to follow the directions on closing it and the ingredients stay separated. All the others I have tried are good for one application and throw it away. I've used it on two different applications of materials that were difficult to get a secure bond and this epoxy was the answer.

I used this epoxy to successfully repair a broken piece of thin-walled pottery. This 2-part epoxy is easy to use, dried clear and made a strong bond on my project material. Squeezing the plunger pushes out equal amount of parts A and B of the epoxy, then you mix and apply. The directions say to apply epoxy to material within 5 minutes and I found that it does set up fairly quickly. If you wait 5 minutes it will be too hard to spread, (Plus the strength of the bond diminishes the longer you wait to apply it), so have your pieces ready before you mix the epoxy. I would recommend this product without reservation.

These new epoxy glue applicators sure beat the old way of mixing two tubes together. This applicator comes with a cap so you can use just what is needed recap it and good for the next time. I tried Gorilla Epoxy on a marble doorway saddle. I didn't expect it to hold the heavy marble, but wanted something to keep the moisture out and be a strong bond. I mixed the two parts which were squeezed out of the applicator in equal parts by the plunger into a plastic cup and mixed them together with a wooden stick. The glue sets up fast and thickens so don't over mix or you can't spread it. I leveled the inset mortar then covered both parts of the broken marble with epoxy and set the stone into the mortar. I had to let the mortar set for a couple of days, but couldn't be happier with the epoxy seal. I sanded the crack lightly to smooth out epoxy high spots and its looks good, a nice clean repair. I always go for epoxy when there is a difficult gluing job to be done. Gorilla epoxy is an excellent choice.
