    My local sign supply doesnt carry Lords anymore, have you guys tried another 2 part epoxy adhesive brand that works as good or better than Lords?

    If you do not need the whole tube you can cap it for later and just get another applicator tip. I like it better than Lords. West Marine carries it.

    plenty of adhesive suppliers deal with Lord's, does your supplier have an alternative that made them stop carrying it?
    imho, Lord's kicks ***. we've dabbled in other brands, like but my guys have always liked the 403/406 better.

    Ellsworth Adhesives has multiple locations in CA, and distributes Lord's. Even if you want to branch-away from Lord's, their tech guys are pretty nerdy when it comes to adhesives and can proly walk you through options they carry.

    We've been using ASI adhesives, a two part that requires an overpriced caulk gun just like Lords for a while. They are very similar, I think we moved to the ASI because it was more easily sanded.
