Forzando Leaker in Welte Mignon Licensee Action
By Craig Brougher

Robbie was wondering if the leaker in the Welte Mignon should be
replaced.  That's up to the rebuilder and owner, but if I owned one,
I'd take liberties with it.  It's designed wrong.

The main problem is the way in which the vent opening was done.  It's
just a small drilled hole, maybe 3/16" or so, that's then stuffed with
packing.  In my view that's too small a hole.  The way they should have
done it is to have simply spot-faced a recess about 1/2" diameter and
laid a felt disk in there.

Any kind of filter that large can get completely covered with dust and
not change the effective size of the adjustable bleed behind it.
