Pinhole Repair

Recommended Posts

I know, I know, I could just throw it away and get a new one, but I like itl.  Is there any way to repair a pin hole in a stainless camping cooking pot?

you could do it with Arc (Stick) if careful and you have enough base metal otherwise you’ll blow right through it. Tig is better for light gauge metals because you have better control. Look for a mom & pop welding shop (if they still exist) or maybe one of the FFL folks here that do compliance work.

Any refer/AC shop could silver solder it up. Maybe even a radiator shop. An old plumber that still remembers how to solder can use Stay Brite. Might not do well over an open fire though unless the holes kept under water.

I didn’t know I can use stay brite on stainless, I’ve only used it on copper. I do know that I can buy brazing rods specifically for stainless, but I’ve never needed it. Maybe guys that work on ammonia systems.
