Which glue should I use to repair a small plastic knob?

The plastic On-Off-Speed knob on my trusty Patton fan has cracked. Naturally, I don't know what kind of plastic it is. Is it realistic to try to repair the knob with glue? What kind?

Try epoxy, at hobby stores in the model section! Or at your local hardware. My husband fixed our neighbor's side mirror on the car! And many toys/nitelight covers of unknown materials!

Sounds to me like you should try a glue gun. Michael's, Joann Fabrics stores have them. I tried to glue using Alenees glue but after the glue dried it fell off. The glue gun glue will do it. Becareful it gets really hot.

Walmart sells a glue in the craft dept. called 527 Bond, works great!

Patton may send you a knob...Lasko sent me a free part, for one of their fans...Call Patton and inquire...doesn't hurt to ask!
