    I would leave .100" per side to be safe. It really depends on who is doing the cutting. You could spec the holes to the laser cutter to not be bigger than X.XX" That way you know you're covered.

    This. And I like to use a coax indicator as you can have sag with a test indicator that will throw off readings.

    There's different colors of Viton. Brown, blue, black, green are the colors I know of. I'm sure there are more.
