I needed some more holes punched in my fat boy belt since i have lost so much weight. I didn't want to drill them as i always did before. So i grabbed a 3/8" bolt from my junk pile, wacked off the threads with a saw. Then countersunk with a small countersink. Then turned the OD down to size of the hole i wanted. The sharpness was already there with the countersunk end just touched up with a file. I drove the punch thru the belt with a block of wood underneath and perfect hole. There was 20 ways i could have done this it was the simpliest at the time...Bob
