There is a tap & die set in the workshop. Dunno if it's suitable for
retapping the hole at a larger thread size, or if the needle arm can be
easily removed for tapping. I won't be able to attempt this myself for
at least a week but if nobody has a chance to try it, or something else,
I'll mess with it next weekend.
