Builder Tip #35 from HomebuiltHELP 
The Easiest, best way to make Instrument Panel Openings?

Whether you use mechanical steam gauges, electronic displays, radios and even transponders: these days most instruments require mounting with round openings in your instrument panel.

Making these cut outs can be challenging and time consuming if you don't use the right tools. Added frustration comes when attempting to drill the small mounting holes for the instruments in precisely the right location.  

Watch as we show the painless way to make perfect holes every time!
