Thanks all. Yes, I use Titebond II for my yellow wood glue for fins and launch lugs. (Used to use Elmer's Wood Glue which always worked fine, but I read in other threads that Titebond II sets up faster, so I'm trying that now.)

I'll see if I can find Titebond white glue. Elmer's white glue is just so easy to find everywhere, but yeah, with is separating all the time I'm ready to give up on it.

I've honestly never had a problem with the motor mount seizing up before I have it in place. But I do notice the tube shrinkage around it now that I read about it. (I never noticed it before, but once I read about it, I looked at some of my models, and sure enough, if I look closer I definitely see the shrinkage.)

I don't build very big rockets so I don't feel like epoxy is necessary for anything I build. I've never had anything come apart in flight of anything I've ever built before. Only thing I've had happen is the occasional fin popping off on landing.
