Use a glue specially for ABS plastic. Most so-called plastic and model
glues are for polystyrene and won't bond ABS since they are not strong
enough. Let me know what you find, since I'm also looking for glue to use
on tons of broken ABS cases. I've been told that there is a glue made for
an ABS type of drain pipe. PVC glue won't work either, it tends to damage
ABS plastics.
