I don't care what we're doin' with 'em... if we're talking tools, I'm in!!

Good set of videos there Mnpctech! I'll have to go through them. I've been wanting to put a window in my Cosmos for a while now. Sure I can make a hole and fill it with acrylic but making it look 'finished' is another story. Looks like you're gonna be the guy to talk to.

Thanks.

Two thumbs up! Loved the hole punch tool. Nice and clean. Word of caution to would be modders, deburring or not it will still cut you. Be careful! :)

You mean the Roper Whitney Hand punch?


Roper Whitney No. 5 Jr Hand Punch kit available here


Hand punch (estimate $60 new, edit they raised the price to $80)



(for cutting fan mounting holes or enlarging existing fan mounting holes for rubber silencing grommets)


Hand Punch makes clean fan screw holes. No deburring.

no, it was a video you had hosted at one point in time for cutting holes... it was some one handed tool item...the video had you using something like a yogurt container for drawing a "perfect" circle on the top of the case

Maybe for much larger cuts, an angle grinder would be useful? I have a sunbeam transformer, just cut out a fair sized portion of the mobo tray to help route cables.

FWIW Crappy Tire has (or at least had) a 'king size' dremel. I had to get an aarobour for it but it will turn 3" fiber disks with ease and not a lot slows it down. It's pretty much like a trim router with no base.

Used this kind of tool at my work many times, it's good for cleanup of light burrs and gives a good finish but it’s not good on heavy burrs such as ones left by jigsaw’s on steel. Cleanup with rotary tool or file first for heavy burrs.
The tool is awesome for taking the sharp edges off metal blanks that you are going to work with and probably for sharp edges of plastics too.

1) dremel
2) drill and bits
3) files
