replacing flint on P&L dove pan

A place where beginners can participate, ask questions, and post their views. However, beginners typically ask a lot of questions about sources, tricks, books, and so on. In fact, all magicians are interested (or should be) in the provenance of tricks, ideas, and related matters. This department will service these needs.

Hi all,
I picked up a copper P&L dove pan without instructions and cannot figure out how to replace the worn out flint in the ignition device built into the bottom. It still has a strong click, but no spark.

I would appreciate any help you can give me. I rubbed out ten years of surface problems and the pan is beautiful. I would love to be able to show it.

Hi,
A quick update. After posting I checked the bottom of the pan for the P&L logo and did not find it where I expected. Now I am not sure if the seller was corrects about that, but it has the same style of flint flasher as pictures I have seen of P&L pans.
