Manships YouTube tip. Align the crack of the record. Smear a small amount of superglue very thinly on to paper. Turn the record on edge and roll lightly across the glue with minimal pressure. The idea is that the glue only just gets into the crack at the edge on the run in groove.  Set aside to dry and this wil hold the crack in place.  Be careful not to get the glue anywhere near the playing surface.

I've tried it and it works.. Just search YouTube for his video.
