I used to use carpenters glue paper joints and had to wait a day before turning depending upon time of the year. Also used hot melt glue for turning small items with a tenon glued into a hole in waste block. I still use both methods if helps design of what am turning. If wanted fast just used face plates and screws back then and will if feel necessary today.

CA glue is fast but doesn’t have much shear strength, having said that turners been using it for years. Brand to doesn’t matter as much as when it was made. Shelf life not more than 1 or 2 years. Older it gets reliability becomes iffy.

Today everyone seems to be hung up on a chuck for their lathe which is understandable given the price of extra face plates and time to mount wood on the lathe. Sometimes the old methods just as good and as safe.
