That's because they aren't english sized holes. They're metric.......... 3mm to be exact. And make sure you use at minimum a cobalt drill bit, those bases are friggin' HARD.

Thanks for the help, never had so much trouble trying to find a metric drill bit in my life. almost makes me just want to drill it out to a 1/8 and be done with it since i have 1/8 dowel rod available.
