For wood to wood contact regular PVA white or yellow wood glues probably the best choice for the money. Never used a wood tap & die set, my thread chaser set hangs on the wall unused!

Think if devote a day to scrounging wood (fire or pallet wood) to make your tap & die face plates glue drying times will not be a problem.

With exception of hot melt & two sided tape which can use in seconds or minutes all other glues require 24 hours to reach full strength. Not sure would use two sided tape but hot melt glue might work in a pinch but would not use it for every faceplate you make.

Started out using faceplates with wood waste blocks turning bowls. Either screwed the blank onto the faceplate using sheet metal screws after learning sheet rock screws not the best or waste blocks and glued paper joints.

Got most of my wood for waste blocks mostly poplar or oak pallets from trash bin behind a furniture store. Started turning between centers before mounting on my faceplates & waste blocks.
