PVC? ABS?

I need to do some customizing involving bonding and need to know what kind of glue to use

No answer?
my Precision Ports paper says this "ordinary ABS adhesive or similar type glue", I just read it preparing for my ported build

I tried it using Purple Primer and ABS cement, which of course worked per your finding.

I did mine "bare naked", ie just the red can cement, put it on, insert and twist slowly and they locked up around 35 - 40 degrees of twist.

Interesting, the guys at Home Depot showed me the can, it did NOT say ABS on it, yet the cardboard box a pack of many came in did, with same product ID #.
Looks like for whatever reason the ABS has been dropped from the actual can label, but it is same stuff.
