Don't use epoxy because it softens with increased temperature. Silicone rubber
might work, but I've not tried it. The original cement was made by Saureisen (?)
I believe. It is likely still available. A web search yielded this:

It's a mix with water cement for glass and metal.  Al checked it and it costs $1
plus $5 S&H. It might be worth a try, IMO.

Good luck,
