    what ya need is a diamond hole saw, get from builders warehouse o any hardware keeping tork craft products

    go for the 41 or 42mm so that 40mm tube can fit through it

    i have been looking for a 42mm for quite some time and have only been able to come across 50mm

    for some reason they dont stock that size. go 50mm and ensure the nut has a nice coverage of the hole when you glue it. it wont leak if done properly. thats what i do...
