Potts Mod stem bolt for GT race mallet?

There are a couple threads on here that discuss converting a GT race mallet to freestyle but neither thread has clear confirmation that a 7-8mm potts mod stem bolt exists.  Has anyone converted a race stem without milling out the hole?  Any help would be appreciated before I take the stem to the machinist and piss off the purists smile

The Potts mod bolts from melts are bigger in diameter than the non Potts mod bolt.   The hole will have to be drilled out....unless you can find a narrow enough Potts mod bolt...I haven't seen one and it would have to be really dangerously thin walled.

some "purist" may have a freestyle mallet they would trade for your race mallet

I'd be willing to trade UF the stems are in comparable condition. I'd hate to see you drill a stem for a freestyle while I'm looking to put a bushing on my freestyle gt stem for a race bike. PM me if i interested
