    Mills No5 Mk 1 Parts

    Good day,

    I was recently given a very nice Mills No.5 Mk 1 (made by C.A.V). Unfortunately, the previous owner drilled a hole through the filler plug (I am assuming to ensure it was empty of explosive, which it is). Does anyone know a source for a replacement plug, either original or reproductions?

    Many thanks for the assist!

    Cheers,
    W/Tech

    I can supply one. Postage will be about £3.75 ($8 CDN?)

    An original filler screw for W/Tech is winging its way to Canada tomorrow.
