LOOK at the post just above yours!!

It's 25/32, NOT 13/16, 13/16 leaves too much slop!!

Maybe my skills are not up to standard OR my drill's chuck assembly is slightly bent ???
BUT I believe that 25/32" is too big by time the hole is made.

If I was to buy an imperial hole saw specifically for the job it would be 23/32" and file out inner lip after.
23/32 = 18.25mm.
But the hole (for me anyway) would be a smidge bigger than that when cut.

Step drill using a pilot hole.

I'll stick to hole saws for the Caselabs cases. Sheet metal bodied cases I'd use a step drill, but the holes don't come out as clean as I like on the CL cases without having to dress them afterwards.

Strange,I have used them on 2.5mm alu before with no problems..even 2mm steel is do-able.

I am glad they worked out well for you.

My black sm8 arrived in perfect condition and I have been working on the cooling system. This case is an absolute dream to work on. It's so much better than any off the shelf chassis. I will post some pics after Christmas.
