If they are stuck tight then go for it. Like Gerry said, most glues don t adhere well to plastics. CA glue is strong in tension but weak in shear strength so I would expect it to pop off if there is much turning left but I ve never tried it so can t say for sure. I m curious how it works out, hope you will let us know.

Hi Rick.
I was going to turn it tonight but I’ve got a killer cold. Didn’t have one all winter, but as soon as the weather gets ridiculously awesome, I get struck with this. : /
Yeah! I know ! Keep the whining to myself. lol.

The good thing is there isn’t a lot of torque pressure at the place where they are attached which is reassuring.

I’ll go out and spin this tomorrow

Thanks Rick
