Max his tools: clamps and a hack saw.
So I ordered another lot from chartup.com and when this lot arrived they were the new version where the centre holes goes all the way through. Excellent! I cut them to length using clamps and a hacksaw in my kitchen. Then tapped the threads using an M3 tap, a power drill and some bicycle chain oil. It all worked perfectly so it is possible without proper tools 🙂
