Default brake lining counter sink

hello questions
1. who sells counter sinks?-without buying the press
2. what depth should rivets be set?
3. does countr sink have stop on it to prevent going too far on lining?
i'm surprised that there are no finds when i enter the search term " counter sink" on ford barn web site
thanks

I bought a machine that does it at an auction, it has stops that are adjustable, has arm over top to indicate hole placement, then countersink comes up from bottom ---i got it for 2$

I got the kit from mikes for $22.,if you go to a hardware store and buy a brad point drill bit they are sharp and can lift up the brake lining and put a hole all the way through the lining, definitely use a drill press, set the depth, hold down the material with one hand, look at the old lining for your depth, I think mine was 1/2 the thickness of the lining.
carry on
