Fixing A MINI Head Core Plug Problem

According to the video a customer brought to Costa Mesa R&D Automotive Machine a 2011 MINI head cylinder:
. . . the core plug in the middle of the head popped out. Our client brought a factory replacement plug in to replace the one the came out. To our surprise the new plug dropped into the hole making it unuseable. A quick trip to the lathe with a piece of aluminum and we had one that would fit with the proper amount of press-fit. . . . .
