    A friend was aboard a new A/C Carrier during the Viet Nam era (don't remember which one) and after their first cruise they studied the ship's layout and came to the realization that there was a large area of the ship completely walled off with no access. They got out the cutting torch (with all appropriate permissions in place) and cut into the closed off compartment and discovered a large, fully equipped machine shop.
    If you can't make it precise make it adjustable.
