For my wand tip I'm tossing in a ag1 bulb and want to hold it inwith a grub screw. I attempted this once the hole drilled and tapped fine. I installed the bulb and called it a night. Next morning I wake up to find hairline cracks spidering around the tube. Anyone got advice for a take 2. I have enough tube here for around 4 more attempts.

Sounds like the screw is over torqued to hold the bulb. How did you install bulb? A plastic or metal ring that has a small dimple for the screw to set in without over tightening might help.

Can you create a small dimple in that housing so you don’t need to overnighten?

Here’s how I approached this. I’m not using the tube itself to hold the set so I realize it’s not the same setup but mine hasn’t cracked.

I like the idea of not tapping the tube. I drilled a hole farther down the tube and stat no issues there. It only seems to be the tapped area. Perhaps I can drill and thread the aluminum tube and run it into that.
