    Hello everyone,


    I bought a vintage clarinet on eBay for $20.
    I don't know the correct brand, it has only "Progressive Paris and B1205" as i show in the images.
    When i was trying to remove a screw, i broke the base of it and now i have to glue it.
    Which is the correct glue/procedure to use? The clarinet is made of some kind of plastic or rubber that i don't know the name.
    Please look at the photos to see better what i tried to explain.

    Thanks so much for your help.


    I'm sorry for some bad english because i'm portuguese.



    Best regards,

    Some clarinets, especially vintage ones are made of a substance called Bakelite. So you might start here: How to Glue Bakelite.

    Good luck.
