    Unfortunately we are out of stock & none on the horizon. We have some of the later square ones only.

    A few months ago I found a multi-tool on the 'bay with the penta. Don't recall the site. Try a search.

    @snwcamper @Greeley @Spiritburner Thanks everyone it looks like I am in for a long wait to get my 123r running properly unless I get my metal file out and make one from an old Allen key I suppose! Great minds think alike @snwcmpr !
    Cheers Nick

    Thanks again everyone I took a leaf out of @kerophile s book and knuckled down with a bench grinder and a a small hand file and made a penta key with from an old Allen key.
    It worked a treat also made a new pip from some Viton rubber so it’s all up and running.
    My only concern is a slightly off center flame which is either it needs a bit more pricking. 0.32 prickers? Or de burring or a new jet.
    Cheers Nick

    Hi, not me...It was @snwcmpr who offered the hex key modification advice.
    Best Regards,
    Kerophile.
