A cutting question

Wed Feb 08, 2006 4:16 pm

Can anyone recommend a good tool to cut through the side of a shuttle case? I am looking to cut a square hole in one side.

Dremel FTW. Widely available in retail hardware and home improvement stores too.

Edit: Hmm, hope they distribute to Scotland...

Lemme guess....for a grill? Dremel is King..Black and Decker make a similar tool altho not as good if you cannot get the Dremel there.

Seriously, the best way to put a hole in the side of a computer case is with a hole saw, not with a Dremel (or similar) rotary cutting tool. I've got one that makes holes perfect for 92mm fans.
