That omnijig looks fantastic.
Charley, I have no DP, table, or bandsaw.
Harry, I could not see how you made the bushing holes, freehand?
There is enough of the good bore remaining to align the Forstner bit, I just
need to make a little jig to keep the shaft vertical, while I very very carefully remove
enough plastic for the bushing to seat and be stable. Will post picture if successful.

Would it be easier to file down your brass bushing instead of opening up your counterbore?

By hand it would take forever, a metal-turning lathe would have been perfect. The big Forstner bit has arrived, so I
hope, with patience, it will turn out ok. Will post a picture. Thanks for the idea.
