kitchen faucet/sink

found a new faucet- problem is the center hole on the sink (porcelain)
needs to be about a 1/4" wider in the front. the brass tube that the spray hose attach's to wont allow the faucet to go forward enough, the escutcheon plate hits the counter top and wont lay flat.
my questions.... is there a way to file or cut with a jig saw to make the hole larger and not damage the sink. I tried to see if the sink could move forward but it can't. other faucets we looked at with the side spray won't fit either.
the brass tube won't bend like the copper supplies do.

any thoughts or just reinstall the factory faucet and maybe down the road find a faucet that meets specs and set forth by DW. LOL

As long as all you have to do is open the hole a bit and the plate will still cover the opening i see no problem. Since you indicated porcelin, i have to assume cast iron or formed steel? If so, i think your best choice would be a rotary file. As in a die grinder or a dremmel rotary tool
