I just finished derusting my newly aquired 605 1/2 plane. Looks much better than I hoped. On to the tote, I started to wipe off the big chucks for an inspection. It broke it half. I looks like a clean break with no previously applied glue or intrusion of dirt.

Recommendations for adhesive? Specific techniques?

Edit: If the wood type is a factor, the plane is a type 7.
Thanks

Epoxy or Gorilla glue. I normally clamp up in a wooden hand screw clamp.

I typically use epoxy. I drill some holes to help it grab.
