    We call it a Stanley Knife down here. But Stanley is a brand so thats not technically correct...

    Nice work. Seems a lot of people are using that drill method for cutting holes...might have to give it a go until i get my jigsaw/dremel.

    Part 4.1 Led's, Button & Switch

    I need to make my own buttons, I was thinking in using some led's to light then up... so I used this simple connection.

    I used some ideas from this "how-to" - http://forums.bit-tech.net/printthread.php?threadid=32590

    http://pwp.netcabo.pt/0144621501/projecto/leds2.jpg

    [Sorry aboute this next pictures, the quality is a disgrace :wallbash: but it's possible to see the essencial ideas...]

    I started to make my own buttons of spare acrilic

    Then i decided were to put the buttons
    http://pwp.netcabo.pt/0144621501/projecto/fotos/2_4.jpg

    got to open it up :dremel:

    In the case I also had to open some holes :dremel:
    http://pwp.netcabo.pt/0144621501/projecto/fotos/2_7.jpg

    the acrilic also need some spare space to put the led's into place
    http://pwp.netcabo.pt/0144621501/projecto/fotos/2_12.jpg

    the aluminium holes for the bottons
    http://pwp.netcabo.pt/0144621501/projecto/fotos/2_13.jpg

    Here I drilled the center of the button in order to put in the switch

    It's called a utility knife. At least that's what it's called in the US of A.

    Oh and an X-acto knife is something different.


    Oh and very nice mod!

    Can't believe you get such nice cuts after using that method. Must have taken forever to file down the edges, but they look damn nice! :rock:
