Default Repair Nikon SB 600 flash base

I just broke the base of my SB 600 flash while it was mounted on my D70 camera. It fell about 2' but it was enough to snap the neck between the slide mount and the body. The flash still works and no pieces are missing. Can anyone recommend a good adhesive to glue it back together?
Thanks for any help!

It depends on what the material is. Likely either PVC or ABS. Plumbing supply stores have cement for both types. If you don't know which it is beforehand, you should be able to test a very small drop of it to find if it works first. The proper one will dissolve a bit of the plastic - the incorrect one will dry on and peel off. If neither one works, you might try super glue, which works on acrylic types.

Thanks VTphotog:
I bought a small tube of "AdvancedKrazyGlue" and did as you advised with the test drop. It worked fine. I then applied it to the broken area and it's holding solid.
