How does your JB Weld hold up?

in my experience---

JB is great stuff.

'Flex' is ok for holding insulating foam together or to the ceiling, sealing where there is little/no pressure.

Gorilla is ok for paper.

only 'Locktite' I use is the red or blue for bolts.

Not a very fair test. If he had tested various two part epoxies against each other, then you’d have somewhat valid evaluation of JB Weld.

I’ve used original Gorilla Glue to glue the handle back on my favorite coffee mug several years ago. Still holding tight despite thousands ( no exaggeration ) of heating in the microwave.

On the other hand, I’ve tried Gorilla Glue white or clear ( not sure which ) it’s not even in the same league with original.

The end of my shifter on my F150 broke off and just dangled by the wires as the cruise control button on on the tip. I used JB Weld, it lasted about two months tops, before the glued joint broke.

I've used JB Weld and not been terribly impressed, especially on plastic parts.OK on aluminium, but no better than the putty I've used that also hardens in 10 minutes instead of 24 hours. But I must admit I was impressed by the test results in the video!
