Default what size hole for Parker refill

I am endeavoring to build a Cigar style pen from metal, using some odds and ends (trnasmission) for a kit Cigar pen. I am thinking I will put a 10 mm hole about 1/2" from the end of the metal bottom half of the pen, and I want advice on how small of a hole to drill for the Parker refill to protrude through. I am open to any advice on this endeavor!!!

If memory serves, I use a letter-D drill bit for the Parker-style refill body, a number-10 bit for the spring, and a number-38 bit for the refill tip.

I hope that helps,
Eric

Bob-RJB Woodturner- is a friend of mine--I appreciate that link, I didn't think of asking Bob, with his new foray into Bespoke Pen making, he will definitely be a great source of detailed information!

Thanks--Don
