Hope you come up with an easier solution than I did - I was having trouble aligning the holes on stands and spacer bars and ended up making templates with alignment posts, it's a lot of messing around to start with but makes it easier. Started with a jigmaster hole pattern with my 'underhead' project https://alantani.com/index.php?topic=26065.0
Also used the same process with a squidder one piece frame https://alantani.com/index.php?topic=28033.0
Hope that gives you some ideas.

It can't be too difficult - a lot of people do it.

I use a similar process but hole number one has GOT to be spot on or very, very close ... or things go to hell from there.

Posting cause not everything in life goes as planned. Not proud of the fug up, but such is life. Decided to drill the cross holes slightly over sized instead of press fit, to allow some degree of error ... broke through. i will NOT be happy with this even if I could save it. So back to square one and a better plan, setup and execution. Rather embarrassed to even post this, TBH the inside edge chamfer likely caused the deflection is my guess. Aint gonna be straight if it don't start straight.

 Don`t be embarrassed You didn`t invent the deep hole blow out . I would still hang on to it .
       I would press round stock in the hole or holes and try a new location call it the prototype .

Hey brother, I got pulled out of town, actually the country, but gonna mail your seats when I get back. I imagine this won't be your only one. One is the Tib foot which is likely what Tom sent, since my spare Tib feet came from replacing with some he color anodized. The other is the Penn Int foot. Yours to play with as you choose. Just post pics :)

To dare greatly is to fail occasionally. Such is life. Looking forward to seeing round 2.
