Ok, just had me another thought. Why re-invent the wheel. If you have an extra hollow probe lying around,  fill the drill intersection with some epoxy and reshape it.

All this is based on never having seen a hollow probe, just assuming that it is made by drilling two holes and calling it a day.

I don't know, maybe I'm over-thinking it.

Yep, but my probe experimentation has run its course for a little bit ;)

Always interesting to review (some) of the old threads, also interesting to see the one, or two time visitor/members (at least 6 guys in this thread) who went away never to return?

You are so correct Brian.  I just went back and reviewed the thread to see how many folks have disappeared.  Amazing.

I am "correct"?  Ya... once in awhile.

I think many of those guys are here for a quick "mod-my-gun for me" visit.

Do you think we have 50 hardcore members? Maybe fewer?

I'm still around. I just don't post unless I have something semi-intelligent to add. Or something possibly funny.   :-*

What a great read, thanks for all your hard work in this.  I have an idea, no idea if it's feasible though & no metal working tools or skills to find out, but here goes.  Could you make a solid probe, the same length as a hollow probe the drill out the centre to make a tube.  Then instead of drilling a hole, remove the bottom section of the probe.  I envision the probe looking  a bit like a train tunnel.  Does that make any sense?  If the rear of the hollow tube part was curved forward would this also help gas flow?  An awful description I know but hopefully you'll get what I mean  :-[
