Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 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 5.0 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 5.0 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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PEANUT ANOTHER REALLY GOOD PRODUCT FROM GORILLA GLUE
I have used several Gorilla Glue products in the past and this gorilla epoxy, just like the other products, has met my expectations. Once the epoxy and hardener are properly mixed together this epoxy bonds to materials with ease. I plan on using this epoxy to glue pieces of Lucite together and believe it will work flawlessly.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mcj7247 Not rated for use with gasoline but great for other materials
I purchased Gorilla Epoxy to repair a cracked plastic carberator bowl on my snow blower. The packaging stated it was for "automotive use" but doesn't specifically state if it's compatible with gasoline or fuel. It's not. I applied it to the cracks after removing and cleaning/drying the bowl itself. The repair didn't last a few days before the epoxy turned to gel and was completely gone. It does work well for other plastic repairs that I've used it on and it's very easy to mix and apply. I thought I'd mention the incompatibility with gasoline for those who are interested.

I used this epoxy to fix two small items. One was a piece of metal tubing that had broken off a Christmas decoration and the other was a square piece of plastic on a closet door that held the strike plate on. In both cases the epoxy held the parts together without clamping. These two-part solutions need to be mixed thoroughly prior to using; otherwise the chemical reaction doesn't stick the way it's supposed to. Always read the directions and you should be fine.
Conveniently, the packaging plastic blister pack itself can be used for a mixing tray, and it comes with its own little wooden mixing stick. I mix the epoxy mixture on a piece of cardboard rather than the blister pack. It also comes with a cap for the syringe so that you can save the unused solution for future projects.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PSHome When you need an epoxy adhesive, nothing else will do
It's not too often that I need a two component epoxy, but when I do, this stuff works great. Pot life is about 5-10 minutes with full cure in under 30 minutes. Great for fixing things like old worn out furniture chairs that otherwise can't easily be fixed with mechanical fasteners.
