Had a project that needed some glue and must admit that I was uncertain about what type of glue would work the best.  Not attempting any product advertising and am posting directly from the site.   Feel free to share alternatives to any product listed below, or solutions not listed below.

How to Glue Anything to Anything Else

There are a lot of glues out there. And sealants and epoxies and putties that bond. It can get overwhelming, not to mention ineffective. But not if you know what you're doing.

Wood glues aren't durable in water. So if you're building something that will be out in the rain, get a product that's stronger.

Wood » Wood (dry): wood glue

Wood glue is fine, mostly because of its price. But since nearly half of wood glue is water, you're left with a lot of gaps in the bond once the glue dries. Those gaps are weaknesses. When you need a very strong bond, use a polyurethane-based adhesive.

PVC » PVC: PVC primer and cement

The primer breaks down the PVC's smooth surface so the cement has something to grip.

Steel » Steel: J-B Weld SteelStik

Weld it, if you can. There's no stronger metal connection. But for quick repairs, first degrease and remove any rust from the surface and use a metal-containing epoxy like J-B Weld SteelStik.

Laminate » Substrate: contact cement

Bonding plastic laminate to plywood or particleboard substrate is actually not that tough if you use contact cement. You can even find low-odor varieties today that are a pleasure to work with.

Pipe Cleaners » Anything: hot glue

Elmer's just isn't going to work for some art projects, especially anything that won't stay in place without your holding it there for three hours. Hot glue cools quickly, providing nearly immediate grab.

Vinyl » Wood: Liquid Nails Perfect Glue

Bonds to anything. Really.

Fabric » Cardboard: spray adhesive

Not the strongest adhesive, but fabric doesn't weigh that much. Plus, the spray makes it easy to cover large areas.

Metal » Wood: contact cement

Clean the metal first. Otherwise, any dust or oxidation will come off—along with the glue you just applied. If possible, sand or file the surface to rough it up and give the adhesive somewhere to grip. As with wood to glass, you'll want a product with a little flexibility.

Plastic » Plastic: PVC primer and cement

Just like PVC, plastic benefits from a solvent to dissolve a layer and expose the cellular structure. If your plastic is clear and you don't want to see the repairs, try Gorilla Super Glue.

Wood » Glass: silicone sealant

Wood swells and shrinks as the temperature and humidity change. Glass, not so much. This puts a lot of stress on the bond, so choose a sealant that is elastomeric (flexible) instead of rigid.

Masonry » Masonry: polyurethane hardscape adhesive

Masonry surfaces are often friable (prone to scaling). Get something that penetrates and holds on.

Porcelain » Porcelain: superglue

Be sure you have a smooth surface, and that broken pieces are perfectly mated. Most superglues have low viscosity and won't fill gaps.

Epoxy to wood works great for "floating" a barrel and action.

Thanks T.E.G.

Just one question however ... And for the non gunsmiths in the audience, what is this and why is it important to ensure a gunsmith can perform when needed?  🤔 😎

knowing your surface and types of glue is important to not waste resources.

 Have you tried Gorilla Glue?  Yes, that is the name of a strain of weed. Wait, I’m confused, what kind of glue are we talking about?

How ironic! I've been tossing up between Gorilla Glue and LSD! Word gets around! LSD won by the narrowest of margins! Gorilla Glue is next on the list!

Check, we all have that drawer that has partial rolls of tape, dried tubes of glue that cannot be used, partially rusted screws and nails, etc.  Ensuring that you have the right tools and materials for the job, prior to starting the project, is critical and is the difference to how men approach life and women.
