You probably want to use a metalized epoxy like Belzona, JB Weld, or PC-11.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Larry,
Your biggest concern may be concentricity. If the bearing fit is gone, that could be a problem. Belzona is a great epoxy. If you can use the old bearing on the shaft, put the belzona in the housing. Coat the OD of the bearing with a LPS-3 or equivalent coating.
Assemble the sander, let the epoxy set. The epoxy will not adhere to the bearing, and it will give you a good bearing fit with no machining required. Just a suggestion, if it can apply to your fix. We have used this method for years on horizontal split case pumps with
good results. I hope this will help.

Check out InstaMorph - Moldable Plastic, it's cheap and might be usable for this repair.

Those epoxies mentioned will stick to many plastics. I bought the PC 11 because there was a glass pop bottle with a golf ball glued to the mouth at the display.
