Anyone have experience using Gorilla Glue to bond metal and wood
together? As opposed to using epoxy?
I'm looking to use some 3/8" threaded rod as dowels and want to be
sure I use the right adhesive.

I used Gorilla Glue to attach an aluminum plate to concrete to create a
stable threshold. The threshold has been down about 6 months, walked on
every day and no movement. I will use it again in similar applications.
Having used threaded rods as anchors set in concrete, I always grind a
groove in the threads that are buried in the concrete to ensure the threaded
rod does not turn in the adhesive.
Good luck with your project.

Never tried Gorilla - nearest I use is Titebond's poly or Balcotan.
I'd be wary of it. The foaming polys are really intended for wood. If
I was bonding metal and wanted something more flexible than epoxy
(which is something I quite often do) then I'd use a non-foaming
polyurethane like the Sikkaflex range. These are immensely strong in
comparison to woodworking poly.
Not thinking straight, I once happened to assemble something like that
with Gripfill (solvent-based construction adhesive). After a week I
hauled it apart, scraped the still-soft glue off it and re-did it with
