    Nelson if the holes are only slightly too small , say by less than .125' Why not make yourself a dimple die and punch then just press out the holes a little.
    This would serve 2 purposes `1 the holes would be enlarged 2 the holes would be perfectly smooth with the raw edges being turned under
    Here is a mock up of the process

    The nice thing about a piloted dimple die as I illustrated is they are self centering and do not require a lot o precision mounting or any mounting at all for that matter.You can even use them on an anvil with a hammer
