    I am surprised I have not posted on this thread. I use:

    • TiteBond for most medium and large wood projects;

    • Titebond for replacing wood pieces in furniture type items.

    • Epoxy of different open times for most smaller projects, limited to one or two spots;

    • Epoxy for repairing broken wood pieces; Epoxy on ceramic over CA - from experience and my ability.

    • specific brands of CA for finish on pens and very small bowls; CA for quick glue jobs but not for where long term strength is needed.

    • Polyurethane glue for gluing tubes into pen blanks, and for some cases where filler is needed in relative small projects. I also will use polyurethane glue when I want tight grip on hidden joints different materials.

    • The epoxy weld glues for fillers and build up where bulk and strength are needed.

    Why do you use the one you use the most?

    How much do you buy at one time? 4 Oz, 8 oz, 16 Oz, 32 Oz, Gallon?

    Where do you store them (temperature issues)?
    A good wood glue is not only extremely strong but also manageable and simple to work with. It should be forgiving enough to let you properly position your surfaces without binding too quickly, and any unwanted residue should come off relatively easily. The most disappointing products are those that appear to create a firm bond but then dry and leave you right where you began, with loose pieces coated in an ugly, brittle layer. To avoid those results, view our picks below, which offer outstanding strength and are optimal for different projects.

Makes me think that Titebond can't get the 16 oz. containers to fill with product. The stores near me had no 16 oz. bottles of any form of TB glue and only 8 oz. bottles of TBII. Sorta like issue CocaCola is having with aluminum cans.
    In TB II, all I can find at least in the 3 closest Lowes and Home Depots near me have is gallons. No 8oz, no 16oz.

    Oh and if I were so inclined, they offer it in a 5 gallon bucket. Good to know for doing PMF, but WAY too much for actual wood gluing unless I am doing some HUGE production of something.... Although honestly for PMF I prefer Gripper

    If I had any stock in Borden's which owns Elmer's, I'd sell it at this point. Zero Elmer's users so far.

    Why do you use the one you use the most? Initially used based on recommendations by others. Works well, so I continue to use them.

    How much do you buy at one time? 4 Oz, 8 oz, 16 Oz, 32 Oz, Gallon? Titebond, usally 8 or 16 oz CA, 2 oz.

    Where do you store them (temperature issues)? Titebond, in a cabinet in the garage. CA, in a refrigerator.

    As it happens, yesterday I came across an anecdote on the Family Handyman site about doing that with Elmer's wood glue, on a recommendation from Borden:

    https://www.familyhandyman.com/article/thinning-glue/

    The text references Elmer's but the picture includes a bottle of Titebond III.

    lots of internet articles about softening and dissolving Titebond with vinegar solutions but none about extending its viscosity.

    Where did I see that you could add vinegar to Titebond II that is thickening up in the jug?

    I guess the trucks just aren't reaching Galveston County with TB II... I REALLY want some...

    FWIW, I have a 16oz bottle that is labelled TB III but is filled with TB II from the gallon that froze up and went bad last winter. Not a lot left, REALLY want TB instead of Gorilla. GG wood glue is, funky I guess for me.

    It spreads easier yes, but it is, uh... slippery I guess is the word I am looking for. Clamping pressure tends to cause pieces to slide around. Open time is WAY too high for my uses.

    Oh, and TB II is one of the compnents I need for the PMF formula for my camper build. (Poor man's fiberglass, google Foamie camper if you are unfamiliar with PMF).

    Went to the nearest Lowes today. Dozens of TBII in 8 oz. Two gallon jugs and nothing else in any TB formulation. Wanted a 16 oz. and settled for two 8 oz.

    Titebond Original ("Titebond I"), II, and III are all in stock in various sizes at the big box stores and local woodworking stores in my area. I prefer Titebond wood glues over Gorilla Wood Glue. Based on my experience, Gorilla Wood Glue takes longer to reach the tack point than the Titebond glues.
