Hi. My trusty Optimus Nova stove has developed what appears to be a known fault in that the brass screw that holds the whole thing together is giving up the ghost.

There is a fantastic looking repair on an American site which I would like to carry out:

However I'd rather find someone with the necessary tools and skills than start accumulating them all myself, at a costbwhich would probably render the repair uneconomic. So, Is there anybody out there who could easily effect this repair in exchange for some small recompense?

The stove is worth repairing; it is a fine stove with a design flaw.

I'm Derby based but posting would be possible I suppose.

In reply to Lyon Outdoor: Hi there, I am also seeking a little assistance with a Nova (pre-Katadyn model) - the connecting fuel nozzle on the priming assembly that connects to the fuel line on the stove has seized up: does anyone know if this can be replaced?
It looks as though the part would detach with a spanner, but as for the OP I'm definitely in novice territory with respect to self-effected stove repairs.
Any assistance greatly appreciated - This stove has served me well over many years and still burns brilliantly, would be a shame to have to replace for something that seems eminently fixable.

Many thanks!

In reply to Siward:I was wondering if you could just saw the head off a bolt and drill a hole in the bottom, and with a thread tap thread the hole, and screw the resulting threaded rod into the bottom?

Could be fairly easy/doable if you're carefull.
