Over the years I’ve had a chance to try my fair share of glues. Yellow glue, white glue, super glue, epoxy and polyurethane. After trying a few different brands I’ve narrowed it down to the one that’s been coming through time and time again.
I remember the first time I was introduced to Gorilla Polyurethane Glue. I was picking up some sandpaper at my local mom & pop hardware store and the Gorilla Glue rep had just visited before I got there.
Anyone ever glue end grain to long grain (think a letter “T”)? If you have, would you trust the glue to hold the joint together? I wouldn’t, but just then the clerk handed me something that would make me question what I was seeing.
The glue joint had been hit repeatedly with a hammer, but amazingly the wood itself failed before the glue did.
I don’t use polyurethane glues nearly as much as I do my yellow glues (also with the name Gorilla on it). But when there’s a need for them, Gorilla Glue is my go to brand. And now with their new Anti-clog cap, going Gorilla on a glue-up is easier than ever.
– New cap design prevents clogging
100% of the time.
– Stainless steel anti-clog pin.
– New wing nut grip cap for easier use.
– Air tight precision seal keeps air out
and glue fresh.
