~.031 is a good target. A #68 wire drill bit will get you to about .0315

What size is a #68 drill bit? Is it 1/32"? If not where can I buy one? All my drill bits are in 32, and 64ths. I have never see drill bits for sale by number. Thanks

You get 10 but pretty inexpensive.



Sno-Tek Modded, 15"X-Track tires (Now has same X-Track tires but 13"x4" for better fit), 254cc engine LED light and hand warmers.
Snapper 6/22 sold but not forgotten. Was my first.

Another option is something like this:




I'd also recommend that you buy a pin vise:




However, if you're looking to drill out just 1 jet.... you could just buy a pre-drilled jet and be done with it. It'd be cheaper.

Here is one of the sets I bought last year.... included a pin vise. I normally use the #32 bit, but it may be better to go up 1 size at a time, as your altitude and weather conditions may be different than mine.

I drill them to .034. Anything less seems to be lean and they hunt.
