Yes it has been posted before somewhere... These torch things are a handy tool to have and readily available in the USA for a few $, good for cooking too! :001:
eBay item number:333644633775

I did my usual trick with the old T40's and drilled them out on the lathe.
5mm first then 8mm.

I wish I had a lathe & a mill and knew how to use them.  Luckily my local independent MC shop does and  Ed, the owner likes to help customers out with their small projects.

BTW, Ed specializes in rebuilding old BSA and Triumph engines.  See : https://www.shopevengineering.com/
