    There is another glue he did not test but also worth having around. PC-7 comes in 2 35MM film canisters and is very similar to JB Weld. I have had fabulous results with it and used it on a part over 20 years ago and it is still strong as can be today.

    Impressive.

    The only thing I could add is when watching the "wood" presentation the Gorilla Glue didn't look like it was applied very well, evenly or hardly at all. Wood is supposedly that glue companies forte. Now of course they have (almost all of them) specific applications for specific materials. I was in my local True Value Hardware store the other day and saw 6-8 different type of Gorilla with an equal amount of eye-catching packaging and applicators. And of course "The Original" that works on everything-type used in the video.

    Better or is it just another ploy in the endless marketing & advertising business selling you "what you need"?
    Suppose the same at whatever else in life you are sold or told you need, HaHa.

    Been a JB Weld guy for a long time. But I rarely use it on wood. Might rethink that. Mixing the glue and catalyst does create some waste because you never want to mix less than you need so you invariably make a little more more. Timed application.

    With any glue we use the proper preparation of the surfaces to be glued is most important. He did a lousy job in a few instances in the video. Gluing the boards end to end I would have used a finger joint and Titebond 2 and would bet the boards would break somewhere other than the glue joint. I tried the Flex glue spray on my rain gutters where they were joined together end to end with a seam and it was a complete waste of time and money. Plastics are extremely hard to glue simply because there are so many different varieties of plastic and we rarely ever know what type we are gluing. I had a 5 gallon bucket I tried the Flex Tape on and it did repair the crack OK but after I filled it with water it took about 2 days for the tape to fail.

    That PL polyurethane is good stuff, have used it for years. 3m 5200 is another great sealant. Made for marine it works great for gutter seams, and thru hull water tight.

    I have a box of the "double bubble" epoxy packets, kind of like ketchup packets. Both resin and hardener in separate packets, but attached to each other. You fold them over, cut off a corner, and squeeze out what you need (often all of it, but not always).
    After having used it a bunch of times, I'm comfortable and confident working with it, and I've used it on a lot of different materials. Works very well. But like Gary said, surface prep is key.

    As an aside, I helped out a buddy with a gutter cleaning business some years ago. He had a spray can product which was some kind of rubber, and he had it in white and silver colors. We'd use that on ends and corners inside the gutters where the home owner said it was leaking. Had to be shaken really well, and you usually ended up using the whole can (it would clog after that first use). That stuff worked very well. It built up a coating that flowed into and sealed the seams in the gutter seams. Ugly looking, but it was inside the gutter where we sprayed it, and it stayed flexible enough to maintain the seal. Might have been an early version of Flex-Seal.

    Thanks Gary. I'll be watching his youtube channel for other tests.

    He did a real good one with Sea Foam I posted here a while back. Worth going to look that one up.
