Best glue for metal to metal

Hi, I just broke this set of wire drawers. Can anyone recommend the best way to fix it? I'm thinking glue, but what would be the best one to get? It doesn't have to be weather or waterproof as it will be inside a wardrobe.

I wouldn’t glue it, as it looks like it had a rivet/screw already in it. Look like you could put a couple of self tapping metal screws in, cheers

Hi.

Could you drill from the right - through that small piece into the main frame and make a small hole - and from there drill a larger hole for a small nut rivet?

Then bolt/screw it together...

 

They sell nut riveters at Bunnings.

Look into the tool box and see if you can find one of these. If not time to visit the big green shed. 6 or 8  gauge self drilling/tapping steel screw. You will need to lay the drawer on its side and tap a starter hole for it so that the head does not move around when you start drilling. It will then drive through the other side and anchor itself to the vertical post across it. Steady hands and a fully charged drill is recommended. Good luck!
