Are the mounting hole layouts for some of the more popular mounts publicly available somewhere?

I ask because I'll be getting a couple piers made for my new observatory soon and I'd like to have the top plate made to fit as many mounts as possible since I'll be upgrading eventually (CG5 currently) and I'd like to have multiple possibilities.

I'll probably end up with a Losmandy or AP, so those would be a priority, but if others might be available, I'd consider adding them as well. There is a local machinist who also has the astronomy bug, so he is my go-to guy whenever something like this is needed. He's always up for a challenge :)
