Dash switches

Ok, here is my issue. I have a stainless steel dash that I installed. It had all switches and heater cable holes pre cut the rest blank. I wanted it blank so I could place after market gauges in the config I wanted. The problem that I am now getting around to is the holes for the headlight, fan motor, and wiper switch is completely round. The holes do not have a flat side to prevent switch housings from turning. I was thinking of just using an epoxy or jb weld to build up flat side. But, was wanting to pick the forums brain and see if you guys know of any other fix.

I'm just brainstorming here but is the flat part on the switch stud not just there to keep it from spinning while tightening the nut thing ? If you just tightened it down it would still move ?

seems the switches on my dash hold just fine in a round hole, so long as the nut is tightened down good.

Thanks for the replies. I tightened the nuts pretty snug and they turned. I'll try wrenching them down some more.
