I would use a drill press and a Forstner (sp?) bit...the Forstner locates itself by its outside diameter...normal drills locate by their centers.

I like the idea of a metal bushing epoxied for strength. You can use any washer you want, obviously fitted to the bolt or threaded rod, and the screw or nut diameter you need.

Nice work so far.

"Tactical" is like can sell anything with it....arf
