For those without their own machine shop tools I might have found something useful for making a diode array, if I cant use them for that then I can at least flip these big ones over and use the flat backside with no holes.

One of these is a Parker VAN22-5003-04 with 8mm holes & has no threading, could be drilled/tapped to m9.05 or 12mm.
The other longer ones are by Siebe Pneumatics 8MMC501M-0801 and have 7mm unthreaded holes, these two types do not have holes that go thru the back.
The holes are staggered 1.5mm.

In my hand two holed / 3 way valve pieces: PS2966P by PARKER, these have 11.2mm inside thread diameter, they MIGHT not work out as well as the above because I will still have some thread left if I drill to 12mm ID.
The holes are staggered 1.5mm.
PS2966P by PARKER - Buy or Repair at PLCCenter - PLCCenter.com

Its some sort of aluminum, I am no expert in metals though, its pretty light for its size and it does not stick to a magnet.
Oh! Here I found it in the pdf file, its anodized aluminum! :)
