    If the nut has shorn off then the only thing keeping the handle on is friction. If you still want to take it off then gently tapping the front of the handle will get it moving.
    You'll then need to permanently glue a newer one into place.

    Or egger flooring glue which is same stuff but cheaper.

    I'd use a MS polymer sealant/adhesive (lots about but like CT1) it will grip like poo-poo but have plenty of flex so it won't crack.

    I was a bit earlier than 90's, but back then they brought out a range of pens especially designed for sniffing (fruit smells). For some reason they got phased out...:loco:
