Drill out the existing screw hole. Then, get a flanged nut like this and silver solder (braze) it over the larger hole. Silver soldering is strong and is easy to do with nothing more than a propane or Mapp torch. There are lots of web sites and/or videos that show you how. You will need some 56% silver solder (small quantities available on Ebay for under $10), some proper flux, and a torch. The flanged nut will provide additional surface area for brazing and make it even stronger. Then use a larger bolt with a shop made knob.
