Keezer collar glue
 
I just wanted to ask you all what you think is the best glue? I have read people use construction caulk like liquid nails but I have also read about people building with silicon caulk and just letting it set. What do you all recommend from experience?

Cheers,
Steve

I used liquid nails on mine and haven't had any problems with it.

Yeah, I also used Liquid Nails.

Liquid nails is GREAT for applying thin flat sheet like beadboard to a wall... Using it as a glue... not so great. Go to a good hardware store or woodworking store and get some TightBond III or Gorilla Glue. Either should be GREAT for bonding and will hole up to the moisture.

Well, I suspect my freezer will die long before I ever have to worry about the holding power of the Liquid Nails on the collar. If not, I owe you a Coke! :mug:

Silicon. It's amazing how well it holds the collar on. I just moved it down a set of stairs without a problem.

Oh... Wait. Are we talking about the glue for the mitered joints or fixing it to the freezer itself? I think I got all bass-ackwards on my thinking...

I used gorilla glue on the mitered joints, clamping them. And used 100% silicon caulk to glue the collar to the keezer.

Yeah I'm just talking collar --> freezer. I think I will go with the silicon as it would be the easiest to remove and start over.

The gorilla glue was awesome when putting the collar together. I just need another coat or two of polyurethane and then it is going on the freezer. My temp controller is supposed to be out on my porch waiting for me :rockin:

Yeah, to clarify, I used wood glue on the corner joints, but they are also held with L-brackets and screws. I used the Liquid Nails to secure the collar to the freezer.
