OK so I've acquired a W/O 4" saddle and now I'd like to attach it to my Easy Touch mount. The 3) mounting holes that align on the saddle are 8mm holes the 3) corresponding threaded holes in the mount that align are 1) 8mm and 2) 6mm holes, so my question is how do I center the 6mm bolts? I mean I could tapper the head of the 6mm bolt a small amount to force the saddle to center or have a couple of bushing made to center the saddle on the threads of the bolts. What are the rest of you guys doing?

I wrote W/O with my questions and their replies where less then helpful.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have the older silver (make in Switzerland) version of the EZ Touch. I just use the two larger 8mm bolts ... it's offset from the center a bit but works well since my scopes are either front or rear biased so the offset gives me a bit more front or rear travel.
