Idler tensioning

Hi Frank (and all)

So, what's the deal on the tensioning tool for the timing-belt idler on
my I4 engine.  I looked over the new idler last night and found the holes.

Has anyone done this without the special tool (pinwrench?)  If it doesn't
require tons of torque on it as I tighten the locknut, then I think I can
use the old trick on two crossed punches with an ID slighlty smaller than
the OD of the tensioner's holes.  Last night, 1/8" looked about right.

Any BTDT on my suggestion, or any other methods?  Thanks.
