Is there ever a situation in which repairs made with what looks like a black glue gun could be considered adequate? In the photo of the bell, the crack(s) go all the way through. The crack above the thumb rest in the other photo cannot be observed inside the tube.

I don't really care about the bell, but I'm concerned the repair to the bottom joint may not last. Thanks in advance.
