|Hi allThe smaller Servo-Link chain is acetyl and the larger Tamiya chain is Delrin or similar.
Both can be glued but there as some provisos...
So far the best results have been obtained with 2 part superglues. These have a primer and a the glue - BUT...
The bond is brittle and any sharp sideways impact will shear the bond. In a straight pull situation the bond appears to be OK.
The results obtained with solvent type glues for styrene were disappointing. and the 2 contact adhesives we tried were unsuccessful.
BTW - if you try to glue anything to chains like these, ensure that you de-point your sprockets so that you don't push off the bit that you have glued to the chain. We learned this one the hard way.
