I googled "gluing acetyl" and came up with the following link for a product
that claims to be one of the few that can bond acetyl to itself or other
Having never used the stuff, I have no idea how well it works.
Marvelous thing, the internet...

Interesting that this came up. I'm making a new leadscrew nut for my Y axis
out of acetal by the thermoforming route. I plan to install it in the
carrier with epoxy. The carrier is a rough casting, so that should stick
well if I can get all the oil out of it. I will turn grooves in the acetal
insert so it doesn't depend on adhesion. The problem with acetal is that
it's soft and malleable so it's like gluing rubber. If the bond can't flex
it just peels away. I expect a urethane adhesive might work if they are at
