Default Fixed broken bowl with superglue - safe?

My clay bowl cracked into 3 pieces when I scrubbed it to get rid of the burnt material on it - so I fixed it with some loctite superglue. I left a piece of charcoal in it on the window to heat it up so as 2 evaporate any toxic solvents and it's still holding together. Do you think its safe to use it for smoking?

As the pieces fitted together perfectly only a minimal ammount of glue was necessary. After burning pure charcoal in it for an hour - I smoked a bowl and it was alright - no ill effects whatsoever. I have no hookah shops in my area and no webshops will take my credit card . . so . .cancer ofe me! I'll keepyou guys posted if anything bad happens but i doubt it.

Get rid of the bowl and get a new one, you can get my favorite bowl from Hookahcompany for $3.95 it is a Saudi Bowl and they offer a discount to HookahPro.com Members.

theres no exact way to go about it according to the MSDS for it http://www.alzet.com/products/docume...4_MSDS_000.pdf

but i would probably not do it, any where else on the hookah i think would be ok but not where its getting that hot.

the super glue is going to cost half of what the bowl cost any way
