Topic: Oboe shaper handle issue -luxe versus rigotti

Hi all,
I own (personally and one for my studio) a Rigotti shaper tip handle. My shaper tips fit the handle (I use Joshua tips) however I have run across tips that do not fit in the handle - their stem is too big.

For example, I came across a Mack+ tip for sale I'd like to buy but know it won't fit my handle (I've tried). Has anyone found a solution as it seems these tips are made to fit in the Luxe handles instead of the Rigotti handle. Any solutions?
