One thing I've tried and seems to work quite well (on another 
application) is UV curable plastic. The last thing I fixed was when the 
post holding one side of the exit paper tray broke off, and I used the 
UV curable plastic to fix it (still working just fine.) The trade name 
is Bondic, and I ran across it on a YouTube ad (first time EVER I bought 
something from an unknown YouTube ad!) This apparently is the same type 
of UV curable "glue" used by Dentists. It cures in about 4 seconds!
