I use a smallish frame...so I don't think I could even position a power drill properly inside the small triangle.

The most foolproof way to accurately drill into tubing is to use a drilling jig. I use this one from JA Stein https://www.steintool.com/portfolio-...unt-drill-jig/
but if you have access to a drill press it would not be too difficult to make one out of a piece of angle iron.
