    If i need a new pricker wire i drill a 1mm hole in the pricker brass carrier
    Then stick the spring handle bit of the acupuncture needle in the 1mm hole and crimp it it saves me frying the pricker needle.
    Maybe my post has confused johns post
    Cheers pete

    @ROBBO55 Because I had a pilot hole to utilise, I was encouraged to use a 0.5mm drill. Still a loose fit for the hypodermic needle but the silver solder took up the moderate slack.

    I have used your method with that style of acupuncture needle, it's very effective.

    Thanks John, I thought it might have been a 0.5mm drill.

    Nice work on the repairs :thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:
