Default Dropped the saw...

So I have a Makita attached to the EZ-Base and this weekend it fell off the table and hit the floor.

Good news: The saw itself is fine. Didn't even upset the square or height.
Bad news: Cracked the back side of the ez-base much of the way across.

I am not sure the names of the parts to this system, but the thin strip on either end used to connect the base to the UEG is about half to a little more cracked off nice and even in the corner/seam. Is there a glue or cement that this plastic will accept to repair it? Or am I just SOL?

I'd probably just remove the broken base and install a new base to make sure if the integrity of the whole thing.

If it's the part that holds the arm of the UEG you have to remember that because of its length it has pretty good leverage on the base.
If it was me and I wanted to try gluing it I'd use West System G-Flex

Will epoxy actually hold on this plastic? Or is West System specific to plastic?

I doubt any adhesive will work in the long run...
