By the way, I didn't know this, but I found out recently that DBE has a sister company that manufactures aircraft bolts. ...

Sometimes I feel like a bolt manufacturer, too, shortening threaded lengths, turning down heads and nuts, drilling for wire, turning crazy conical diff stay washers, et al.


You've inspired me to try to drill the bolt heads for the rear brakes. I haven't done too much serious metal work to date, but I have a drill press, and a set of titanium nitride coated bits. I know I need some cutting oil, and some way to secure the bolt while drilling. Anything I'm missing here?
