    Hi everyone,
    One of the feet on my 400 split in two. I have both halves (one still attached). My question is: does anyone know what kind of glue can be used to stick it back together. I'm hesitant to use Superglue incase it's the wrong type of plastic.

    Thanks

    I use Gorilla Glue on everything. Hasn't harmed anything yet, but read the package before buying it. Thorne

    Hmmmm, I always thought they came with rubber feet, like below. Originals were plastic??? Never seen one.

    Dark Brown plastic. My oldest unit with the plastic feet is my TA-600. Everything before that was rubber.

    The dark brown plastic is a little “waxy” not so much pure hard plastic. Might be tricky to glue back together. A hobby shop, modeling or RC cars place would probably have a glue called Jet Glue, it is a cryo glue. It comes in instant, crack filling and time set.
    Testers modeling glue might work, again at a hobby shop; white and orange tube
    Plain old contact cement might work

    Thanks for the replies. Yes, they are dark brown and waxy. I will try either the Gorilla or the jet glue. bhamham, thanks for the offer. I'll let you know.
