    Re: what type of glue?

    High strength epoxy or gorilla glue imo



    I would be a procrastinator, but I keep putting it off.

    basically need it to create a seal between the wood/plastic since I'm going to screw it down to the plastic also. So doesn't necessarily have to have the strongest hold, just something that will seals without too much expansion

    silicone if you cut a nice edge, wont give you much hold but thats what the screws are for.

    If you want low expansion don't go with the Gorilla glue I suggested earlier

    I was thinking about a silicone based adhesive, but wasn't sure how well it would seal against the wood.
