Hey Guys,
Once again... you can buy these...

It was quicker for me to just make the size I needed...

It works good enough for me... Gets the screw head "Flush"...

That was all I was asking of it...
.
The Pictures are self explanatory...

Basically, I laid out the same parts used to make it...

and took a picture.
.
That outta be worth ten thousand words right there...
.
Gotta Fly...

I thought I would post some examples of where I used this tool .
.
I also used them on the rear window frames , then they were covered by fabric .
.
Its not the perfect dimpled hole , but it does the job .
.
If had a lot of holes that needed this , I'd buy the tool .
