Somebody has talked about it.

The problem is the casing is not over thick and usually drains have their casting design built up around the drain to take a longish drain plug with some torque to stop it coming out.

I suspect you may just want to drill and tap a hole in the bottom, rather than dismantle the RD back to the casing and TIG weld an ali reinforcement where you want to add a drain plug.
