    I have super glued cracked nuts and they worked fine. Give it a try after all you can't damage it...it's already broken.

    If you can't glue it back together, you should just have a new one cut for your bass. Off the shelf, pre-carved nuts are pretty close to useless.

    I recommend have a competent tech make a new nut for you from bone - it sounds good, allows the strings to pass through the nuts slots with little binding, and looks nice.
