I thought to use putty or clay but it was too hard to measure. So
I used a two-part epoxy putty that I bought at Home depot instead of solder. You just roll the two parts together. The cure time is slow so you have plenty of assembly time. Having said that I siliconed the sufaces that it touched so it didn't adhere to anything. It stayed in place better than solder and dries hard as a rock. It was easy to check with a dial caliper. I mixed up two batches per cylinder.
And if you'e real anal you can save them and pass them down to your children or make ear rings for your wife.
I'm always thinkin' of ya Alice!!

When I get back out to the garage I'll get the name and edit this post.
