Default What's your favorite type glue? Brand?

My jug of Titebond Yellow (probably PVA, but it was put in an old ketchup{catsup?} plastic bottle a while back so not sure) just gave its last gasp so I'll need to stop at my favorite big box store for a new supply. The yellow glues have some weather resistance I've found. But is a resorcinol type for another buck or two per bottle actually a better choice for all around use? I do have and use Gorilla foaming glues occasionally as well as epoxy(dislike) but they for sure aren't needed or wanted for inside work. Additionally, I'm not 'into' old time work and hide glues though appreciate those that do use it and successfully

Thanks !!!

Dave W

I use Titebond III (the green bottle cap) for just about all my projects. It has the longest working time and yet sets up in 45 minutes. This glue is highly water resistant so it is a good choice for out door projects too.

I agree with Mike, Titebond III, for most things!

I have found that hand tools are the best choice when I want to make mistakes at a slower rate of speed.

I don't suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it.

Went to do my Friday morning town run around chores and I stopped in Home Depot. With a bottle each in my hands and said - 'I bet the answer from the Router guys will be the green' so 'sprung' for it.

Thanks for the confirmation of anther "good decision"

Yellow glue by Franklin from their commercial line..
that's the company that makes Titebond...

costs about half of what Titebond does...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Yellow PVA glue for all woodworking tasks.

2 part epoxy for other gluing jobs.

Titebond III is the only glue I use for my work. Well other then CNA for intarsia work. In my opinion, you made a good choice.

Nope - 16oz bottle was $7.49 vs $5.49 (of course, plus The State of Taxes, New York's 7% in my county). I'll probably pick up a small bottle of PVA as well, JIC.

Again, thanks, folks
