Graham, this is a great idea. The needle, however, can still move
laterally some with vibration and make contact with the jet. When I was
considering machining some of my own, I had planned on making a similar plug
with less play for the needle, particularly at the 1/8" diam section. Your
idea certainly is cost effective!
