Hoke Torch Tips Sizes

Nowhere on the 'net is there information about the actual sizes of tips for the Hoke Jeweler's Torch!  So I've measured and posted them here.
  • Propane Tip #1A - Drill bit size #60 - 0.040 inches
  • Propane Tip #2A - Drill bit size #57 - 0.043 inches
  • Propane Tip #3A - Drill bit size #54 - 0.054 inches
  • Propane Tip #5A - Drill bit size #49 - 0.073 inches
Here are some Victor tip sizes for comparison:
  • Victor #00 - Drill size #70 - 0.028 inches
  • Victor #0 - Drill size #65 - 0.035 inches
  • Victor #1 - Drill size #60 - 0.040 inches
  • Victor #2 - Drill size #56 - 0.046 inches
  • Victor #3 - Drill size #53 - 0.060 inches
  • Victor #4 - Drill size #49 - 0.073 inches
