NICE! Don't think the clamp is big enough to hold my heatsinks though

Its 100 mm wide (max) There was a larger one, but that one was only 150 mm (or something) so still to short and it costed 50 euro or so (this one was 27 euro excl btw if I remember correctly)

I think you have to use "lijmklemmen" or something to fix a large heatsink with the back facing up. Of course you want to put something beneath the ribs to protect it (a piece of MDF maybe)

Use a drill to cut a smaller hole or holes, do the rest by hand with a file or dremel?

If the material is not too thick..

This person on www.triodedick.com uses these Greenlee "ponsen" (punches??) to press round holes for his tubes. Maybe they also exist in square shape

Seems to be expensive though

Thanks Tazzy

I 've done this before and when the hole is hidden behind a switch that is ok.
But how do you get the perfect straight presentable cut.
Maybe with more patient work or special machinery I guess.
