    the holes are two big so I assume I need an alternate approach, especially the inaccessible one, I assume that at a push I can put a bit/washer on the other one.

    So, questions...

    1. Whereís the easiest place to get replacement bits? I couldnít see any at Home Depot etc.
    2. What is the best approach for tackling the oversized hole issue when I cannot get to the back of the hole?

    Iíve read about replacing with plastic, it seems the guidance is theyllnshear ifntheres impact, what are the pros and cons and where would I get plastic ones? I donít expect to spend much of any time on the track, in that case is it appropriate to considernplastic?
