I went into Home Depot to get a couple of hex bolts, and a large washer.
They didn’t have a large enough washer, so I asked one of the guys if they had something that would possibly work.
He took me to the construction supplies area, and had a square shaped washer for doing concrete, or possibly chain link fencing.
The inside diameter was too small (7/8” and I needed 1 3/8”) so I had the guy in our model shop at work bore out the hole.
I drilled and tapped the two threaded holes, assembled the bolts in place, and trimmed the bolt heads to the right length.
