Is JB weld better than epoxy?

While JB weld might be superior in strength, it won't make your joints any more so. JB Weld is better for bonding metal than fiberglass & paper. I'd go with epoxy , which will soak into the fiberglass & paper giving you a much stronger bond = stronger rocket.

Is JB Weld as strong as steel?

General Principles: Although JB WELD makes an excellent filler---and can even be used to cast small parts, it is not remotely as strong as real metal used this way. Whenever possible, use JB WELD as an adhesive---a very thin layer of JB WELD holding two pieces of metal together.

What is stronger epoxy or Gorilla Glue?

If they are used correctly, both are stronger than wood, so as a practical matter they are equally strong in most situations. The wood will break before either glue breaks. As a material, hardened epoxy is stronger than the polyurethane that makes up Gorilla Glue, but again, that doesn't matter in actual use.

Does Super Glue work on metal?

Yes, superglue will work on metal. There are two parts to how a glue works. Over time, these adhesive forces can deteriorate, and the glue will become less effective in holding the two pieces of metal together. However, for the short term, superglue works really well to glue two pieces of metal together.
