    Howdy, All,

    I've been fettling my pre-1912 Optimus 00 Traveling stove, and have it a snag, with which I could use some help. Please check out the link below, and scroll to the last page to see what I've found, and any help to get this safely fettled will be much appreciated!!

    Thanks, Gentlemen and Ladies, and God Bless!

    Every Good Wish,
    Puzzled Ol' Doc

    If a tap the same thread as the bleed screw is available, I'd braze the hole in the fill cap shut, drill, and retap to original specs. Failing that, braze the nut to the fill cap as suggested in the other thread.
