416 Bolsters

Greetings Steve,
I have a question about pinning 416 bolsters. I currently use bolsters about 5/8 wide + or - a tiny bit. I use two 3/32" pins to fasten them in place. Are two pins enough? How wide do your bolsters have to be before you use more pins? and how many do you use?
What grit do you flatten your bolsters to before fastening them on the knife?Thanks.
