It's faster, cleaner and dont have to worry about slippin and damaging a $650 case and waiting weeks for a replacement panel.

Initially I thought my 22.5mm punch might work

Stepping bits are $10 or so via eBay, I have a set of 3 bits bought for $12 and they work great!

Not to further hijack the thread but...

Yes you can get em cheaper than $60 for sure.

Also to avoid slipping, use a center punch and a hammer to dent the metal slightly and your bit won't slip.
post #8684 of 22271
Or get a self center punch like I did: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=121403020469

I don't think this is very off topic, given that many CaseLabs owners will be interested in modding out holes/pass throughs.
post #8685 of 22271
Yeah I know all of this guys, I just like quality tools I guess, Also you cant tell me theres not a chance that a dull or cheap bit wont possibly snag or bend the panel when stopping/starting. It's a possibilty I was trying to avoid that's all. If you ever used a GL ko punch you know how clean and easy they work besides I had the punch not the bit remember

I'd take that GL knockout over a step bit. Anyone see the results of them before? They're amazing, even if they are expensive (unless you work with it often at your job).

Day 8 of 5-10 business days. I'll be surprised if it ships anytime other than the 10th day. I'm also just a bit worried about running my parts in a cardboard box. Awaiting fulfillment is a dirty phrase for me now frown.gif

I know man, I'm with you. Same boat......

Would it be too much to ask if CL provide some sort of counselling for those people like us? grouphug.gif
