    Just a brief update... the densitometer arrived BROKEN! The yahoo packed it like a child and there was bakelite everywhere. It still works however, and I must say that the visual matching seems to be a very accurate system. I'm gonna try to find another clean one, but it should work in the meantime.

    Hello !
    Bakelite can be glued (and restored) using two component epoxy glue. Get the slow curing brand, and use 3M tape to hold the parts during cure. If you remove the tape before total settling, you will have minimum trace. Epoxy glue can be colored and mixed with powder from small broken Bakelite to get the color right.
    I use this method when repairing old radio cases and it works quite well. A google search on radio restoration sites will give you a ot of good advices.
