I have a Raleigh Grand Prix and was trying to put a modern wheelset on it, but the front dropout slots are too narrow to fit the axle. Is it safe or possible to enlarge the slots? The fork is chrome plated which I hear is very hard to grind.
In response to some comments, I'm moving from a nutted wheel to a quick release. Which is really weird to not have clearance for.
To be clear, I'm referring to the axle diameter not the hub width.
