You'd have to get it to sit in the right spot first, and then add a tiny drop 
of the very fluid super glue where it could flow in on it's own. Given the 
construction of this needle, that might be difficult. It would be much easier 
if you still had access to the front end of the shaft after the  needle was 

For something like this, there actually are some slow setting CA glues, which 
might let you adjust things before they set.
