Default Is there a quick fix to a broken EGR Tube?

While changing headers I snapped the EGR tube in half on my 95 Cobra. This is the tube that goes from the headers to the EGR valve next to the throttle body. The "bellows" looking portion of the tube makes you think this thing is flexible, well it is not. I hate to pay around $75 for that part. The tube is about 3/4" in diameter. Is there a somewhat flexible piece of metal material that I could pipe clamp on both pieces to hold it together than seal it up with an exhaust sealant. How about a high temperature piece of sicilone hose? Not sure how hot this tube gets but it had a heat protector on it similar to a spark plug boot protector, so i am sure it's up there. I have emissions inspections in our area so I need this thing to work. Maybe i can have it welded back together, but that not so quick as I would have to find someone who could do that. Any good ideas?

JB Weld is definitely on the list to try now. There is no moving parts here, only heat and (I assume) a small amount of pressure. What is nice about this repair is that I have time to try different things and fail without much negative results to the engine. But, come April the emissions inspection will take place and no exhaust leak can be present. I have tried to attach a picture of that tube.

Why not consider having it welded or brazed so it's permanent?

It is somewhat thin but i will check on the welding potential, just found a machine shop and welder less than a mile from my house. I hope I can use this guy for more than just this issue.
