I have picked up an Italian matching top and bottom GP headset, but the bottom has a 10-12mm hole drilled in for hydraulic cable, is this repairable? and have the hole welded up. Thanks

Any decent TIG welder can fill that for you!

You can get good results using liquid metal. I used it to repair an early Indian headset last year.
