Icarus : im strongly leaning towards glass for my current case. do you have any pictures of the inside and outside of that side panel/window? it sounds sexy as hell.

Bungwirez : have you tried that one out? i actually asked about that exact model a while ago here, but the thread was lost during the joker redirect episode. i would love to hear some impressions of how it is for working on cases and plexi, and how it compares to the dremel kits (like the 34 piece dremel kit that is more than 10x the price of this one).

Bought this one 4 years ago... used it two years to go around electrical boxes and light fixtures while drywalling, and various other odds and ends. Still going the old trooper, bought 2 spares and still have yet to have to open them.

mcdermot lumber seems to have better pricing than rona/home depot on plastic sheeting.

I really dislike the look of double sided sticky tape. It looks unfinished to me. Drilling out for nice flush mount socket heads looks a lot cleaner to me.

Included ones are small but do the job, I just grab the larger fiberglass ones from can tire.
