      When I re-did the bolts in our table-mounting some years ago I seem to remember that I simply flipped over the rectangular aluminium plate end-for-end. That gave me fresh aluminium under the existing holes in the pedestal and floor. All I had to do was drill and tap four new holes in the aluminium plate.
       
      I also replaced the slot-headed machine screws holding down the table with hex-head ones so that I could more easily torque them down with a wrench. Be careful not to strip the aluminium threads again though!

      To save repositioning the table pedestal bolt holes [if the threads in the aluminium plate are stripped], investigate Helicoil thread inserts which should be readily available. Google threw up suppliers when I looked.
