Will a Tama Star-Cast mount open enough to fit a DW L-Rod (12.5mm)?

Update: problem solved, I found some 10.5mm L-Rods in my parts bin.

Tama L-rods are 10.5 mm, but I already have 12.5 mm L-rods. Just wondering if these will squeeze into the Tama mount and hold me over until my 10mm rods arrive (about 6 days after the drums get here).

Doubtful. I have a GMS kit that came with 10.5mm mount and rods. I tried to put them on my DW mounts and no good.
Tama could be different for sure, but a close to 20% tolerance is unlikely.
