Should we be using PL8x?

PL8x is more expensive, but it appears to be the strongest.

Thoughts about using this stuff over PL3x? Worth the price?

This YouTube channel has lots of good comparison reviews if you haven’t seen it before.

Probably have to copy and paste link.

Lots of people claim the wood will fail before the glue, but 8x was the only one that actually lived up to that claim.

I have wood/ply/mdf fail well before Titebond 2 I use. Love the stuff. I wouldnt use pricey stuff unless I was expecting large mistakes. But in my case Plywood is way easier to work with and titebond grabs it like a vice
mhutchins and Craig S King like this.

Does the 8x expand to fill small gaps like 3x does?

I’m not sure. Some commented that it’s actually thicker and fills larger gaps. Some also said that it being thicker was actually a bad thing for certain types of work. Probably very hard to pump out.

I don't know if I got a bad tube, but I tried 8x one time and it was an absolute nightmare getting it out of the tube. I immediately went back to 3x, which has never failed me.
