Notches are 'preferred' because side-drilled holes are so difficult to macnine into a pipe weld. Notches only give OD and ID. If feasable, 1/4 T /12 T and 3/4T side-drilled holes [like the ASME Basic block] would my strong preference.

Hi,
I can suggest start drill hole with 15mm to 25mm diameter surface area. In every slide drilled hole can attached with pipes fitting notches.
