I've used superglue and my pieces have not broke since I glued them.

This question is a little off topic, but what kind of glue is best for the older resin pieces?

The fact that both bottles are kept separate and have their own cap makes it that I've had the same bottles for many years (with regular use) without it "drying" on me. A "must" in my opinion for a hobbyist.

COncur. Although I generally use the fast-cure two part epoxy for specific reasons.

Im sure getting all the post holes the exact right size in dwarvenite is not easy.

You can actually use cyanoacrylate (aka crazy glue) or gorilla glue, I guess, for the pins. You need very little - partially because the pins are such a tight fit that you don't need the mess of a whole bunch oozing out when you re-insert the pin. I've used a gel cyanoacrylate that works rather well. there's much more surface area between the pin and the hole wall so the glue works well. As well, the force of friction is close to the same on the pin coming out of the hole of the floor as it is coming out of the post so adding some glue easily overcomes that.

There's a bulgy bit with teeth on the end of the pin that goes into the post hole that's supposed to overcome the friction on the pin when being pulled from the floor hole. But I guess the tolerances on the holes are not exact enough and some post holes can be a bit larger, thus the pin comes out of the post hole.
