Just thinkin'...maybe Plast-aid. Make a clay mold of a good one then use Plast-aid to fix the old one. Might work?? I've used the stuff to fix lots of broken plastic widgets. Pretty durable stuff. Never tried to clear it with acetone...

If your not doing anything with them I would be happy to take them off your hands might even trade you a few of my good cranks for them.

put an old rusted hook on the back and hang it up in a tree where somebody can get to it. theyll think its the find of a lifeime. remember how excited it is finding a lure when youre out fishing. cheap thrills for sure.
