Bushings would be good but anyone can fill the holes with epoxy and redrill through the epoxy .... using only common hand tools and a dril jig. I like the microbaloons idea for easier drilling.

Thanks for the ideas everyone. I decided to just fill the holes with epoxy and re drill. Seems to be the easiest solution.

Remember to drill 5.2mm holes rather than 5.0mm! A 5.0mm hole is too tight for a 5.0mm bolt!

I have 6mm OD brass tubing, that fits the 5mm bolts just fine.

I don't see any issue with that. The bolts don't hold the prop in place via side load. If they did, they would shear like we see with loose bolts. It's the compression between the hub and hub washer holding the prop in place. That load is spread over the entire circumference.
