Make a metal sleeve that fits over the stub with inner sleeve to guide the drill down the centerline. Progressively drill it out HF has cheap long drill bits that will dull out in seconds, or carbide tipped drill bits from Granger.

Start drilling crooked and you will have a hard time correcting it.

Drilling out the rod ... hmmm, wanted to avoid it but I see the benefit, one less part in the middle of it.

Any links to the 5/8" fiberglass rod?
What's the original recommended length?

Thanks Robert

Love building planes almost as much as flying. Latest completed build is "Loki", a Chinook Plus 2 bush plane.
