Rubber cement is normally my go-to, but at ~1400rpm, it didn't hold up.

You could also have e^(i*Tau)=1+0, which also shows a relationship between e, i, Tau, 1, 0, just as the one with Pi does. Except having "+0" on an equation is about as inelegant as you can get; you didn't even perform the easiest simplification available! Well, e^(i x) = cos(x) + i sin(x)...
