Let me open this issue up to the masses then and see if anyone can devise a way to do what I'm after :)

I have a focuser that I want to fit to an OTA. It's mounting plate is incompatible with the OTA holes and I do NOT want to drill the OTA again.

The mounting plate that I have that fits the drilled holes in the OTA has a central focuser hole of say X mm wide.

My replacement focuser has a diameter (to go into that hole) of about X+2 mm :(

In short, I need to get the central hole of a focuser mounting plate bored out by about 2mm, with as clean/machined finish as possible.

Any takers? :D
