I wouldn't even try drilling it, just weld a nut to the bottom.

Possibly solder/braze a nut to the bottom?

Here are my humble entries...



Right is my first lathe work in 10 years (it got scuffed when I was threading the insert) and the left one is my second time in 10 years. Both are cherrywood.

They may not be the best looking, but I'm proud of them.

I like the smaller, less chance of accidental opening style handle.
Here's my RR spike. It was surprisingly easy to work with. I used an air grinder, cut- off wheel, drill, and tap. It polished up real nice, but it is already siding some surface rust. I need to hit it again, then seal it somehow.

I'm sure just about any shop would do this for you fairly cheaply...

Thanks! A local supplier here in NJ, But you can get them I think from Northerbrewer, or Midwest.
