Use skinny wire… we use a pair of 24g solid wires pulled from a CAT5 cable.

I do it with a rasp and a chisel and its not crude at all, as a matter of fact it does not leave the sharp edge transition of a chamfering bit rather a smooth rounded surface.

I'll probably use a rasp drill bit of some sort. There isn't a lot of room for error along the edge of the cutouts near the sides of the cabinets.

Skinny wire as mentioned by P10 will sink less heat away from the soldering site. Clean the tabs, use a good solder with flux core, a hot iron with a large enough tip (0.125" is OK) and be quick, but don't rush.

The #24 solid takes very little time to heat up & solder - just be careful not to nick the wire with strippers, and gently fold back through the hole in terminal. I don't get so carried away as to wrap it more than a single fold.

If you are good you can get away with no fold at all. I’m not always that good all the time, sometimes a single fold and a squessze is nice to hold it in place so you don’t need that “3rd” hand.

Enuff CAT5 can often be had for free by asking at the local computer store for scraps.

I received the drivers this afternoon and have begun the painstaking process of breaking them in at a barely audible volume level.
