Lol, again you are quite right, that would be far simpler to do all round really. Looks like I'm having an off day in the brains department. :-) Normally I'm quite sharp when it comes to lateral thinking.

I think I've found a suitable engineering firm near me to make the part so that's all good. Shame I haven't got a pillar drill with a decent sized chuck otherwise I could have just made it myself. A normal drill definitely won't fit a large enough drill bit for the lower hole as that's the one that has to allow the socket wrench to reach the recessed nut. Getting the steel box section would be easy enough. Hope the nuts come loose ok. I'm not completely sure they will though. Fingers crossed.
