I finally Googled Pot Metal Repair and came up with a couple of good hits. One is www.muggyweld and the other was Caswell.com. I bought (ordered) two .25 oz. tubes of the Caswell Pot-metal zinc metal solder. You drill out the pits, fill them with the paste, apply heat (propane torch until it flows, sand and re-plate. I found this one first, otherwise, I think that I might have purchased the muggyweld. It will fill hols and even weld broken pieces according to their claims. They do have some instructional film clips on their website. Looks promising!
