Glueing wood to steel
« on: September 24, 2023, 01:16:39 pm »

I need a thick epoxy type glue to stick a wooden lever to a rotatable steel peg that needs to take a lot of torque.


Any recommendations regarding the best glue?

For this use it would be best to go for an industrial epoxy glue, a couple of exampleshttps://www.easycomposites.co.uk/rigid-5min-epoxy-adhesive
https://www.motorsandrotors.co/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=79&products_id=472
Either of them would probably work but they do have the disadvantage of needing a dispenser which generally uses a mixing tube. Both suppliers will sell the dispenser and mixing tubes. Hysol is commonly used in the construction of turbine powered jets.
