Thanks for the info a while back Michael, but I am still having problems getting the thumb screw to stay in place.
This is the first time I have really played with these stoves since my last month long session with them, but I am still having problems. When i just drill a hole and run it through, it works fine for the first few uses, but then the hole gets too stretched out and the thumb screw won't stay in place and i lose pressure. If i try to JB weld a nut to the inside to hold the thumb screw, the JB weld melts and stinks! I am using the red and black "original" stuff.
Anyone who knows a solution to my problem let me know, it would be much appreciated.
