Just as there are multiple types of other glues, epoxy and CA glue are offered in many types. Generally speaking, when priced by volume, CA glue is one of the most expensive glues out there. It has minimal gap-filling performance and I would leave that job to a high-solids PVA product designed for the task or to a general use epoxy if the repair (or rather the gap being repaired) will be seen.
Depending on the size, location or use case, filling gaps in hardwoods generally calls for some elasticity. If the "fix" is non-structural a quicker cure epoxy is suitable. Speaking as a generalization, the faster the cure, the weaker the bond for curing-types (as opposed to drying-types) of adhesives. For colored gap filling in hardwoods a relatively weaker bond (still hell-a-strong) is fine so I take advantage of the faster cure. Not only can I continue working sooner but, any tenancy to 'go where I don't want it' is reduced.
I was pretty surprised, to say the least. If my daughter hadn't been watching I would have had some choice words to say about it. Anyway, I'm still within 30 days so I'm going to see if I can get them to do anything about it.
You snapped a bessey??? There had to have been a defect with that thing. They are pretty indestructible. I'd bring that right back to where you bought it and get it exchanged.
