@Dijit The measurements are probably metric but here is what I found. The machined surface the stopper rests on is right at 3/4" across. The hole itself is close to 3/16". A 3/16" drill bit fits great but a 13/64" bit is too large.

Hope this helps!

Thinking of the suction cups @Digit found on Amazon . . . wondering if there may be nitrile suction cups findable? My understanding is nitrile is likely to be appropriately resistance to heat and oil. Silicone rubber may also be an appropriate material.
Good point. I think I’d have to put one of these in some oil/heat and see if it’s able to hold up before I throw it in my 3.0.

Silicone is the more heat resistant material, it’s what is used for space craft re-entry heat shielding.
