Default re: Motorized Bicycle Take a Tip...Leave a Tip

here's another one for putting holes in gaskets;

find a bolt a little larger than the hole you need.

put gasket on hard surface, like a smooth concrete floor or the flat part of your vice.

center the bolt over the spot you need the hole.

whack the bolt with a hammer.

if you look at most bolts, at the end of the threads it's usually indented a bit, so it'll cut right through the gasket and leave a perfect hole.
