    Is that the 3537 needle burner? It has a small neck tube, so you'd need an additional tube for a larger burner.

    My initial reaction is that's a lot to size down and yes, conventionally it'd put the stone at risk (distortion of the shoulders as it's being sized).
    My gut feel would be to unset the stone and...
