A67 MAN very kindling sent me the missing catch from my cooker top

It looks like it was originally riveted on

Other hinges on the unit where

Has anyone ever drilled one out and put a new rivet in, or should I just screw into the old rivets?

Drill out and replace the straightened catch (put it on the right way round - ask me how I know LOL)

Sorted :) Although I didn't straighten it as it seemed to be angled and I didn't want it too tight to break again

Next questions..

I fired up the Dudley and it seemed to work great, in fact I couldn't believe how much heat came off it!

A totally newbie question for you to laugh at but... whats the centre gas bar for ?? :oops:

Would you believe I re-fixed one of these today! It's very difficult to drill out the old rivets because they have the end of the steel pin stuck in the rivet so you start drilling and the drill just stops when it meets the pin. I managed to drill mine out using a new expensive 3mm industrial tungsten drill on slow speed. The same is true of the rivets holding the stay on the front flap. Be careful because you need a lot of pressure on the drill to cut the steel so when it gets through the rivet is can shoot through the wood underneath. I did mine using a pillar drill with the depth stop set.

I also made a new front cooker flap and the flap for the spare wheel compartment, using 1/2" ply and some formica. Came out really well. I also made from scratch some stainless straps and pins that hinge the front flap. And cleaned the alloy hood with strong caustic - came up a treat.

Altogether a good day in the workshop :D

Nearly forgot - the pan you think is a frying pan is actually your grill pan. Don't try to fry with it as the enamel will crack off. Devon also supplied an unenamelled one which can be used to fry but eggs stick to it like sh1te to a goose :wink:

LOL :oops: so obvious it was grill :oops:

So the little pan I got was the grill pan? should it have a wire grill on it?

What do your pans look like?

I have a small collection of Devon grillpans, probably the saddest collection on here. I'll take some pics and post them.
And yes it should have a grid on it.

Nice find. Just sat and read the thread. When I bought my bus with the OG Canterbury Pitt interior it was missing a few bits and it's been good sport hunting down the parts to make it complete. I've bought bits and pieces as well as job lots just to get one piece as well as sold other pieces on so that others can make up their missing parts. When you finally track down a missing part and secure the deal it's a right good buzz. Hope you enjoy putting it all together and restoring up any parts that need doing as much as I did.
Just as an aside, the catch in the picture below is also used on a Canterbury Pitt table and also to secure the rear facing bench set into folded out position.....anyone know where you can get these catches?

If the tab bit that you use to slide the catch is slightly bent, whatever you do, don't try to bend it back as it will break off. Ask me how I know this :roll:
