Help! My V-Cube 5 Core is Broken!

Hi all!

I was solving my V-Cube 5 today and I dropped it. Long story short, the core split in half along the middle... I'm thinking about supergluing it back together but I'm worried that it could prevent it from turning or something like that. Anyway, I'm not quite sure what to do. If anyone has some advice, that would be great. Thanks in advance.

Can anyone tell me how to post pictures, by the way? I'm not sure how to do that but I would like to show what my core looks like. Thanks.

You should try super glueing it then sand off any excess glue. If it falls apart again, then you can contact V-Cubes and order another core from them. However, Shengshous are a cheap alternative from V-Cubes. My Lan Lan center piece broke and I super glued it, The turning has been compromised slightly but it still is fine.

I had my SS 5 core snap in half like yours and supergluing it made it only last one solve before it collapsed on me again. I managed to get several extra V-5 cores from V-Cubes though, so I ended up switching back to those.

Broken Lanlan 4x4

I recently was playing with my lanlan 4 by 4 when i heard a snap and the cube had a huge explosion. i examined it and noticed one of the stalks on a center piece had broken off. i tried to glue it a couple of times but after assembling it the piece broke after a few moves. is there anything i can do to fix it? if not where can i get a replacement part? thanks!:)

This happened to me... I tried gluing it back on with superglue and after a day it broke off. The stock is a stress point, and won't really be fixed. I guess you'll have to buy a new piece or cube unless someone else knows how to fix it.
