    I've had two Minicons whose pegs in the middle of there ports broke over the years and is there some way to fix it like replacing that peg?

    I've thought of trying to replace it with a part of a tooth pick but I'm not sure how to glue it in the middle tight.

    The only way I can think of is to either resculpt it or just get rid of the middle part and treat the hole as it it was just on a solid peg.

    Would it be possible to drill a small hole into the port and glue a metal pin into there? Perhaps put a tiny lip on the end that's being glued in so there's something to hold it better. Maybe even heat the pin and push it in and turn it so the lip gets set as the plastic around it rehardens. I accept no responsibility for disasters though.
