Cracked balls

Ouch :O . Seriously once a subby ball is split in two are they just fit for the bin or can they be repaired :?:

Liquid cement delicately applied ?
Put the ball in the freezer for half an hour once it's dried out and then take a knife edge round the join if there's any excess.

See if you can pull it apart - if you can't it's job done :D

A wee touch of Humbrol liquid Poly, when it's dry bounce the ball on a table & if it makes the proper noise you're sorted...

I'm just going out to the bin to retrieve a couple of orange tangos #-o . I did keep the yellow one. when I get a bit of time I'll try and repair them. Thanks for the advice.
