    I would drill into both parts and insert a brass pin to reinforce it, and glue with epoxy.

    Thanks, i was thinking of the pin idea and and also thinking epoxy, but not in concert. Thanks! You think the pin is necessary even with a good epoxy?

    I feel like such an idiot, there was a bend in the neck but no break, and i tried to straighten it without warming up the pewter first... stupid move.

    Definitely use a pin. It provides strength to the joint that you won't get from any glue/epoxy. :)

    Thanks for posting the fix, I have one in the same shape. It was broken nearly 20 years ago.

    Pinning will give it a solid connect point.
    Also rough up the surfaces so the glue has something to hold onto.
