Ended up drilling new holes, but this seems like it would have worked if I could find the right screws.

Thanks for explaining that, now that I actually think about it, the 1" thickness doesn't make any sense and not sure why I thought to increase the fraction (not used to imperial I guess). Not sure what width the other actually is (I think the guy said it was only half a mil thicker). Will try your suggestion. Cheers.

Two trips to the hardware store and not much luck. A #8 5/8" seems to fit okay, but the spacing between the threads is too great and the handle just wobbles about without falling out. Also tried a 1" thick bolt that is just a tad big. Dude at the store said I might need to resort to a rivet, but I reluctant to do so since I don't have the tools and am renting. Any other options?
