Redrilled Torch Tips

Tinman, Saw your note about the hole in the victor tip progression. 00 too small for 0.035 (4130 tube), and 0 too big. Any reason not to take a 00, and the suitable numbered drill, and make 0 1/2? If so, what would be the appropriate diameter for said drill. (it's a lot cheaper for me to buy an extra 00 tip, than YA torch head.) Use 0.035 a fair amount -- on recumbent bike const. Jeff DelPapa

The Tinman Respondeth:

JDP: Victors we have not redrilled. Meco Midget torch tips- yes, and they do well. In any case start small and creep up. ----Kent"
