    I’ve been using 5200 for decades. While it takes a while to fully cure, I’ve had by far the best results with it over most anything. I’ve certainly used JB Weld with generally pretty good results, but for many applications it would be much more difficult to use and would end up a lot more expensive. I seem to recall 5200 needing moisture to fully cure? Maybe I’m thinking of one of the other 3M marine adhesives (they make several I know).Thanks for the test! It would be interesting to try better wood or attachments to see how it does when the wood does not fail. I’ve used it more for fibreglass than anything.

    I love your channel. Just actually used it for the first time today when I bought a new battery for my truck. Bought one from Walmart. Anyway I have recently watched all of the glue and construction adhesive vids and I noticed that on several occasions we didn't get to see the full strength of the products because the wood failed before the product. So I was thinking that you should try it again with a type of hard wood like oak, or maybe plywood. And when you do please test Jb weld. I know it's not fair but I just love the stuff. Thanks for all you do.

    Question. Did you prep the surfaces like scuff them up. Typically paint and adhesive works better in a controlled environment to its specifications on product and scuffed up. Ik you did controlled environment it what about scuff. Cause I always scuff surface. Just a question thank you. Love your videos

    I love this test! My room mate used some CA that never fully dried. So it left a sour taste in my mouth when it came to CA glues.

    In order to get a fair comparison between JB weld and the other products, you should have let the construction adhesives cure for a much longer time since they don't use a catalyst OR glue up the JB Weld tests 15-24 hours prior to testing them all, with the construction adhesives having cured for a week. Comparing a catalyzed adhesive which has cured 8x longer than the label says gives it an unfair advantage.

    Wow, just found your channel. It's great to get such great testing from an unbiased source!

    All of the adhesives, but for the epoxy 2part are urethane based. Urethane adhesives need a bit of moisture to cure. The reason they most all did poor on the pvc is that the pipe, being hydrophillic, could not provide the water molecules to trigger the cure. There is something different about the 3M chemistry that seems to be able to cure even when moisture levels are near 0!

    I did not see Loctite in this trial. I will never buy Gorilla Glue products. They failed multiple times. Their only good side is the ads.

    Subscribed, love your channel. Please do a thorough test with HDPE (HDPE to HDPE adhesion) using adhesives such as 3M Scotch Weld and Loctite 3035 etc etc. Thank you.

    Great Channel! I noticed GOOP is shown in the middle of the display of adhesives, but was not tested. Was there an issue with using Amazing Goop? I've used this product quite a bit and was really hoping it would be tested.

    Shoot most of the time you have one of the products I use, but no LePage PL Premium. Awesome videos though, not complaining.

    I have never seen a YouTube channel who puts so much effort in to stuff like this. I don't need this knowledge, it doesn't really apply to me right now but I know if I ever need any strong adhesive, I know to go for 3M. Although, I know 3M is well renowned for its adhesive, especially it's VHB tape. Thanks a lot Project Farm, your videos are interesting even if they don't apply to many of your viewers.

    Instead of soaking with water, soak with gas, JB weld has issues with that kind of chemical exposure, at least I tried patching a gas tank with JB weld on a 87 Chevy, it leaked 2 days later.

    I like your videos however you got to be less dry with the numbers and just trying to get to the point faster. Mimi make a second video that you can link that goes over the numbers of people care about that but for most people we just want the results not so much the accounting of it

    Suggestion : since the wood failed before the adhesive, we really don't know what the actual numbers are.How about using simple clamps on both ends of the boards instead of through-bolts? There are clamps with teeth, if smooth jawed clamps still can't hold against your winners there.
