Like its been just over 18 mnths since ive gone to Bunnings..

I stayed away like it was a bad disease.


anyhow, went there last night, and
looked at the spread of glues..

Glues have become like the car oil merchants...

Its all made in the same fkn factory, but the packaging differs,

so the bright colorful packaged ones sell for $19.95,
and the dull ones sell for $4.85..

In the trucking game, I pick up this stuff from manufacturers...

THEY ARE MADE OF THE EXACT SAME FKING STUFF, SAME FKING FACTORY !

...same as the car oil by the way...


FACT !

I very rarely buy name brand stuff, I don't see the point in paying a premium for some fancy companies name. :headwall:

Marketing is a ridiculous and black art, is it not?

Whilst we consumers remain dumb ignorant and susceptible to bright flashy things they'll make money from us. I often wonder if there are annual marketing conferences where they get together and celebrate the biggest and most successful con job of the year.

Same as Round up, Just a brand that they charge $30 dollars a litre , The active ingredient is glyphosate at a rate of 360 grams per litre or you could buy the Hortico brand for $10.

As my uncles Thai girlfriend says , "Same Same"

Friggen rip offs

Probably depends on who makes the batch of stuff in the Araldite type tube that you bought.

If the batch was made by Nolickie – Nostickie Glue Goo Emporium it will be shit and be dull. :confused:

If it was made by Premium Cherry Blossom Number 1 Glue Additive Factory it will most likely stick like shit to a blanket and be shiny. :D

We want everything cheap, then we have to pay the price ... :bananaro:

Yep!
At work we stock a few weed killers, all the same stuff: glyphosate 360.
We buy it through a supplier, who give us an RRP. The cost price for EarthCore, Sirdar and some no name brand are all within $1.50 of each other, but the RRP's vary by over $10!
And they're all in the same bottle FFS!!!

Hell of a lot of things come from the same factory. But same factory doesn't mean same components/ingredients/things.

Sure, you get stung for brand names on some things, but other times it can mean higher levels of QC, more was spent to use better adhering/longer lasting ingredients, or even someone was given correct instructions, instead of being told to wing it.

Ever bought a cheap tool that failed on the first bolt, and then the expensive tool lasted beyond your expectations? Same factory. Made out of iron ore. The process has a smutload of bearing on the outcome.
