I love these kind of 'make it work' (while doing no harm) solutions!
Absolute genius, both of you! As it turns out, the discs fit over the
tapered part of the spindle, so stacking discs and/or mats up to that
level is a perfect solution.
And as for never having seen an entire collection like this before,
obviously, Dave, you've never had an entire collection of "As Heard on
NBC" discs from 1968-1969 before ;)

things to people who advocate drilling larger center holes.
But I've never run across an entire collection of discs, instantaneous or
otherwise, whose center holes were all too small for a standard turntable
