I know how to fix a c-bow plunger if it breaks in the middle, but mine keeps breaking at the top where the rubber plunger connects to the main part. It's a fairly weak area as it is, and it's a hell of a pain to put back in place. Right now, I have about an inch long nail driven between the two pieces for stability, and then it's filled with epoxy for strength. But it keeps breaking on occasion. If anyone has a better idea for me to keep it from breaking, that would be MUCH appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Well, I hate to state the obvious, but a screw works well. Fill the groove sides with epoxy or some other strong glue (even hotglue manages to work in large doses), drill a hole smaller than the thread of the screw, and tap it (if neccessary). Should stay fairly well.

Wow, I feel like a dumbass... there goes my "brilliant" idea of putting the nail in for stability. Thanks Zero, but I'll have to wait a week or so for it to break again till I put your idea into use. :(
