    Seam Grip?  You could probably make that even.

    Buy a new pair of socks?

    Throw them away, do preventive maintenance on toe nails and be sure shoes are correct size :-)

    Use seam grip when hole is no larger than 1/4″ :-)…..actually, a darned 1/4″ hole  might not have the lump.

    You can make seam grip repairs bigger than 1/4″.  Use a plastic backing, then peel it off after curing.

    I wonder if you could make seamgrip clothing or a pack… : )

    @gregpehrson  Hey, Greg, is your pot bottom staying flat?

    Anyone tried the quenching method for repairing warped(oil canned) bottoms?

    Sorry, I have not yet found the video or thread on how to fix the bottoms. :-(

    Yes, completely!

    Here it is in action on St. Patrick’s Day in the Berkshires, melting snow.

    Thanks for your titanium wizardry!

    Still have not found the “de-oil canning” video :-(

    Over at whiteblaze there is a hiker that burned some food inside their titanium pot and wants to know how to clean the stuborn burnt crud. A member suggested to do the burn-off method. I’ll give a quote of the comment:

    If you put the empty pot on your stove (do this with Ti, never aluminum) and heat it, the deposits will burn and turn to ash and can then be easily removed with a damp cloth or paper towel once the pot cools. There will be discoloration of the titanium, but this will not matter a bit to the pot’s function.

    So, after I saw the comment I quickly advised against that method. Hope I was in time to ward off another pot disfiguration…..we’ll wait and see.

    I felt inclined to bump this thread up to see if there are any more pots that i can fix

    Locale: Gauche, CU.

    For a low cost and non toxic solution, I would use equal parts of water and vinegar and let it simmer for 15 minutes or so.

    Some use baking soda and vinegar but I would do the other first.
