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 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.

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 1.0 out of 5.0 by FreedomFlowers I expected much better results
I make custom jewelry out of silver, bullets, and bullet casings and wanted to upgrade from Gorilla super glue to epoxy. The two tubes come out at different speeds so for small applications so the mix isn't right. Then when I did get a good mix after several tries the application was sticky even days later and did not hold anything better than the elmers white glue. After my experience with the tough hold of gorilla's super glue I had really high hopes for their epoxy. Was a hard let-down. I'm glad I test it out before selling finished products using this epoxy, it could have put a serious blemish on my business.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by fizzie Super strong and easy to mix !
This product works and works well !
Before you start make sure you have a piece of wax paper or some surface to mix it on.
Also have an applicator stick ready, depending on the project that could range from a toothpick to a Popsicle stick. I cut mine to the desired shapes for what I am gluing together.
It's easy to dispense equal amount of both parts using equal pressure on the syringe.
Mix it up and apply!
I repaired a broken outdoor clock frame as well as an outdoor solar lamp, both are plastic and they are like new.
I also repaired a broken ceramic jewelry case cover. For that I used a toothpick to apply smaller amounts to the edges.
This as well as the Gorilla Glue that automatically mixes it right in the spout are my favorite "go to" epoxies!

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 JoeFromOH Works fairly well
Used it to bond two pieces of stainless steel which I roughed up with sand paper first. I let it cure for about a week but the pieces still came apart. The glue all stuck to one piece but not the other. I've used it to bond wood and plastic and it works great for that.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pete Want to REALLY super glue something? This will do it
Anyone who has used epoxy before knows that if you want to permanently affix something together there is no other option. This Gorilla brand performs as well as any brand I've used.
