Replacing the plastic handle assembly would fix the problem and it's something I'm considering, but it's $100 for that part (even more here in Canada), so I was just looking for a more cost concious solution. Plus, over time, the same thing will happen to the new part as it starts to wear out. Just a dumb design I guess. Thanks for the input though, at least I'm not the only one experiencing this problem.
And on the JB Weld site it says it will bond "iron, steel, copper, aluminum, brass, bronze, pewter, porcelain, ceramic, marble, glass, PVC & ABS, concrete, fiberglass, wood, fabric, paper -- just about any porous and non-porous material". No mention of plastic, but I guess plastic is probably included in the "just about any porous and non-porous material". I guess it's worth a try. The worst that can happen is that it doesn't work, or I ruin the black plastic handle assembly and I'll have to replace it, which was going to be my last resort anyways.
