I know the Gorilla stuff is supposed to be strong, but which is best for the MDF. And also if the glue is really doing all the work, does it hurt to use air staples?

Woodglue...

Gorrilla glue expands and can knock joints out of alignment.

Wood glue.


Gorilla glue only bonds the surface. Wood glue penetrates the wood fibers and forms a chemical bond

wood glue. Chemical bond > physical bond.

Gorilla glue ***** balls.

They both hold well but the advantages of using wood glue dominate that of Gorilla Glue.

gorrila doesnt ****, and if you use screws it wont knock the joints off

The bond may not **** but the clean-up and mess created sure as hell *****. I had a bottle explode while applying it one time. That ****** pretty hard and it was on my hands for days.

The air staples? Are screws still better?....the air thing would go sooo much faster.

none are better then the other..they just hold the enclosure together while the glue dries

Not to mention that gorilla glue is ridiculously expensive compared to a big bottle of titebond II.

Titebond II and ProBond. As stated in my other thread, I tested both wood glue and gorilla, and the wood glue surpassed it.

I mean, I'm not trying to be rude, but I cannot see any reason why anyone would buy gorilla glue when it's sitting next to WOOD glue that costs under half as much.

saywhat?

So is Gorilla glue for gluing Gorillas together??

i used the gorilla glue on mine and it worked well. what i don't like is that i have a plexi window to look at the inside of the box, and the gorilla glue expands and made the corners look a little rough. it was more work to get it looking clean. i'll go with titebond next time for that reason.

That is correct. You may want to sedate them first.

Three pages already. Thanks all, I now own a new bottle of Titebond2 and the air compressor is ready to go. The gorilla glue was recommended to me a while back, so wasn't sure if it might work better for some reason. I suppose it would work better if cuts weren't too straight....expanding and all.

my friend used gorilla glue on my last box and it worked just fine. i already bought a bottle for my wall. i was thinking of using titebond for where the wood meets, and maybe gorilla glue on the inside of the wall. idk.
