If this is a small piece and super glue type glue would work, you can 
buy super glue accelerator spray, and put the super glue on one part, 
spray the accelerator on the other part and as soon as you put the 
pieces together, they are stuck.  Make sure everything fits because you 
only get one shot.

"Superglue" has come a long way, there are lots of isocyanurate glues 
these days and one of them might work.
