IF you already have the rotator you can make a template for drilling the 
holes if need be.

Using cardboard (like the back off a tablet) or even a plastic sheet 
protector (this may take a little practice), turn the rotator upside 
down and lay the plastic or *thin* cardboard over the base. Then take a 
ballpeen hammer, using the ball, *LIGHTLY*  tap the sheet over the areas 
where the bolt holes are located.  Done properly this will actually give 
cutouts for each bolt hole. (Make sure all holes line up--at the same 
time)  Center the template on the accessory shelf, mark the bolt holes 
and drill.

This procedure works well for making gaskets using gasket material of 
the proper thickness instead of the other materials.
