I don't recall a chart. Maybe someone will post.
For now, here's the common ones.
Nutplate=bolt=drill
K1000-06= #6=#29
K1000-08=#8=#19
K1000-3=3/16"=#12
K1000-4=1/4"=1/4"
K1000-5=5/16"=5/16"
K1000-6=3/8"=3/8"

#29 drill is too small for a #6 screw. Use a #27 or #28 drill (~ 9/64")

I guessed. Actually, I usually put a caliper on the bolt before grabbing a bit just to be sure. I usually drill about .010 small and ream to final.
