How to remove this fastner?

I need to take apart this pizza hood oven. I tried drilling through it with a standard black drill bit but was unsuccessful.

You mean those Rivets? A Drill Press will make quick work of them, along with a sharpened bit.

Looks like you used to small a bit and only drilled out the center.
A slightly larger bit and do not try to go all the through.
Sort of wiggle the bit around as your drilling and it should catch enough to stop it from trying to turn.
Your trying to just cut off one side of the rivet head.

I found an 1/8" drill bit works great for rivets. get a titanium gold bit for metal...
