Adjust the vertexes like above.

Insert a vertex into the edge as shown with the 3d Snap on set to Midpoint, hide the 2 edges and make visible the 2 others.

Select the faces as in the picture and then follow a series of Extrude/Bevel to create the edge and another for the hollow.


On the point, make the horizontal edge like above.

Then move the vertexes downwards.

Lastly, make visible the 2 edges like opposite.

For drillings, select a quad as shown, use Extrude/Bevel and adjust the vertexes to have a square.
Extrude again into negative for the hole.

Start again for the second hole.

Finally remove the horizontal edges. That gives a better smoothing with Meshsmooth in this case.
