    You should be able to use your kit it does the same thing as my blair hole cutters. I am working on a way to use this with different size holes using sleeves on the shaft of the trailer hitch ball. That is the most important part because it's centers the sheet metal as the ball goes into dimple. I do a post with the whole set up once I'm done figuring it all out. I also am going to use a 1 inch ball with like a 1 inch or smaller threaded shaft for smaller holes. Its all in my noggin I just need to get out and into metal.
