I'd not bother using the existing holes Huw.

Drill out the two inner ones top and bottom rows and the two outer most ones on the centre row if you really wanted to go for it, then drill and tap the existing weight to suit their alignment.
space the new weight off the existing with suitable spacers .... job done and lot less faff.

the holes'll be a fraction out Huw because they're drilled square on to the face of the weight probably .... heading for an imaginary centre point about 30 or more feet in front of the machine, at a guess

With respect Druid, a lot of weight blocks these days are little better than foundry slag. I'd be happier bolting to the machine proper than to threads in a weight block of unknown strength.

The studding is how I add additional weights to my machine if needed. Makes it really easy to add or remove the second block too.

Besides, I'd say my method was quicker- no tapping. Cheggars has to drill or bore regardless.
