Repairing stripped threads on a cast-iron radiator
I have a cast iron radiator that will not accept a new air vent valve. It looks as though the threads within the radiator are stripped. How can I fix it? Is there a bit I can buy? How do I know what size bit I need? If there is a bit, do you know what it is called and how much they are?
The new air vent is hanging on, so I shut off the heat to the room by closing the valve all the way; is that okay?
Thank you in advance for your help, because I really need it!!
