This worked for me as well.

Done it a few times, but most notably I've got a spare-tire mount on my 
trailer that's got a 1in (I think) bolt thru a plate to retain the 
wheel, I cut the threads off the last inch and a quarter or so of the 
bolt, milled flats on the sides, and drilled it for a padlock.

Cutting the threads off will require a fairly high speed and shallow cut.
