Wonderful,
What size hole did you drill for the jack? 7/8?
Thanks!

Yeah, I think it was around 7/8.  Don't quote me on that though.   I actually oversized the hole by mistake.  That's why I have a rubber gasket under the jack...

That's what I measured, but am worried about the screw on the side. Read that it was a problem. Use a step bit? They are pricey.
Nice job with the gasket...looks quite intentional/professional.
Thanks
