I just received our 2nd tippy and I immediately opened it up for a quick polish/cleaning.
I immediately noticed that the rear allen bolt that screws into the bolt (right side) is stripped.
I applied some lock-tight to both, which seems to have helped...

I am wondering If I should worry about this?

I guess I'll find out this weekend :D

I just checked, and it's not the threads on the bolt, but what it actually screws into (inside)...
Is that part called the power tube?

you should be able to hit an autoparts or hardware store and find a tap that will fit. take the allen bolt with you so you can measure the thread pitch. It shouldn't be a big problem to fix.
