Any half-decent technician has expanding and shrinking tools for adjusting tenons to fit flutes. That is standard practice.
Tenons are difficult to measure accurately enough; the minutest difference in diameter can make a change from a loose fit to a jamming fit.

The OEM head from our 365II is about .7775”/19.75mm when rotated in the 500Series Mitutoyo... birthday gift for my eyes.
I was able to crush some Gemeinhardts to fit.... hire a Pro. :D
