Put down the dremel? He who cannot mod with a dremel - should not be modding.

Rule of thumb.

Or you could always just purchase a hacksaw that uses a handle on only one end of the blade. They cost all of about $2.00. Why would we put down the Dremel when it's the best way to mod just about anything? Even a small pair of side cutters and a file will do the job, but a Dremel will do it with perfection. I suppose you could try using a hacksaw blade if you have no skill with a roto tool, but since they're so easy to use I don't see any point in using something like a hacksaw blade if you already own a roto tool.

If you don't own one, then purchase one. It's easily the best tool purchase I have ever made.

Except this power tool is the easiest to use, and even a child could use one without messing up anything.

So, you've just done your first case mod, and you're telling people with experience that they shouldn't advise people on what they have found works best? Sorry, but when I'm cutting into cases or equipment at work, I don't use a hacksaw blade. You can purchase a roto tool for about $25, it will last for years and can do all sorts of jobs. It only takes a little practice to get pretty good using one. They're simple, and easy to use, and they're way faster than using a hacksaw blade.

Can you find just one single example of someone in this thread who was advised to use a roto tool and messed up their case? Didn't think so. Sounds to me like you think you have a major solution, but there's no problem.

There are lots of way to cut out the mesh that work fine, but roto tools work best and are likely the fastest.

What the hell are you doing ?! "...I am just trying to save peoples cases and money..." if anyone want to customize his/her computer, they can do what they want for ther dream system. What you do with your PC is ok, but this is a facile solution,...

All I can say is rotary tools are easy to use, inexpensive and very versatile. I would highly recommend anyone doing case mods (or anything else for that matter) invest in one. They are excellent tools.

If I didn't have one, or couldn't afford to purchase one (for whatever reason) then I would use other means, including hacksaws and side cutters. If you can get a rotary tool though, do yourself a favor and pick one up.
