I may be using the wrong term, but I'm calling it a "nipple well" that area the nipple screws into... I finally was able to get the right size wrench to remove the nipple from a recently purchased Zouave, and the first thing I noticed is the nipple has no bottom base. See the picture beside the new stainless nipple. Then examining the "well" it appears to be cracked. I took my pick and can stick it in a couple places. What's going on here? Is this a crack & does it need repaired if it is repairable? Any idea why the original steel nipple has no base? Thank you for your input.
