    hole ? how large ? repairable ?? the cheap ones never even get away with being cheap as much as they may think they are .. sometimes gotta make the customer happy .. if he opts for repair braze it .. ive brazed holes shut as large as dimes with great success

    Had one similar once, used epoxy and a strong vacuum. And a signed release form before I started!
