    How did you space the holes and drill them accurately?

    On top of that, patmccarthy last posted in late 2016, 4 & 1/2 years ago and hasn't logged on in almost 3....

    If I understand Pat's process, your spacing is 120 degrees and using a protractor will be close enough. The holes are drilled on the outside of the inner ring, I'd say at about a 45 would work, with the button head of the bolt acting like the nib on the old school wheels. If you need a bit more "stand off" put a washer or two on the bolts. If you find it needs to be a bit tighter, drill & tap (or just tap) to the next bigger size.

    Enjoy the little things in life, and you may look back one day and realize that they were really the BIG things.
