Another informative video, thanks. You may want to mention that the transfer punches are not to be used like a center punch. Just for marking, then use the center punch (extends the life of transfer punches)

I have several sets of these in different sizes. Very, very useful tool that can save hours. You can find them at McMaster-Carr, just search "transfer screws".

I always make mine but would love to own the real kits

Cut the head of a bolt off , put it in your drill , sharpen to a point on a grinder while spinning the drill ,

File flat spots if you need to put a small crescent wrench on them to turn them near flush

Same here, or hack/bandsaw a slot for a screwdriver to go beyond flush.
