You're not kiddin'! I was going to respond to your original request for
info, but figured you'd get at least a dozen names of machine shops. I
thought you were quite clear in what you needed - slightly bigger holes.
This thread is what happens when you ask geeks something non-computer.
I'm surprised someone hasn't suggested CAD software yet of offered
Cutting oil, rat-tail files, dremel tools, reamers, liquid wrench,
sheesh!! Obviously, all that is needed is a power drill motor, bit, and
a clamp. Oh, and a sample screw so you can size the bit (1).
You can find both at the NAPA Auto Parts and machine shop on Convoy Ct.
in Kearny Mesa. I think they're on the corner of Convoy Ct. and Ruffner.
Big blue building, can't miss it. Best to go into the back, directly
into the machine shop.
(1) I assume that the metal is typical die-cut mild steel; nothing exotic.
