+1 for the Gorilla Glue. I've used it on all sorts of jobs, and it does what it says on the......bottle.

WEAR GLOVES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Simply because you can't wash it off your hands. Water activates it, so washing your hands makes it set even stronger!)

I would have thought plastic welding it would have been a better idea!
Is it better to over think, than not think at all?

Read what it suitable for, before buying!
