    Just posting some photos of my Radius No.7 before I sell it. Its a little bit beside my collector area. But it's nice after all. Just given it polish cleaning and repainted the plate om top, with hot paint color.

    Looks like there is hole on the top of the burner or is it just an illusion ?

    You are right, and still, the burner is brand NOS. I do have a couple of other burner hats, with no hole. Maybe it shouldnt have been there?

    Could it be used with a wire for holding the cap on, or would it disrupt the vapour flow? :-k

    Alec, I'm not quite sure. I have lightend up a couple with similar burners, but they have been with more burned shit, so tthe top hat was more fastend on the burner. So I'm not sure what should happens using a wire. Maybe try once in the near future8]

    That top hole could be repaired by silbrazing.

    Hi, Like @Tony Press said, but use a small brass plug and then silbraze it into place. Silbraze is great at seeking and filling small gaps and cracks, but less good at bridging holes or bigger gaps.

    Best Regards,
    Kerophile.

    On the two new picture the burner has got a new top. No drilled hole on this one.
