Hello! I came across an old Graflex flashgun with a piece of it's bakelite broken. Can it be repaired or are replacement bakelite parts still available? I'm wondering if my wife's Martha Stewart autograph hot glue gun might work? Thanks for any advise!

Is it broken--missing or broken--cracked/separated? Cracks/separations in bakelite can be fixed with epoxy. I repaired a straight-through crack in the bezel of my prized Telechron office clock (model 1H1308) and it's held for over 35 years.
