  • Drilling holes in pedaltrain for Neutrik jacks

    Does someone know what drillbit is best for this?  Does anyone know where you can buy a pedaltrain with the jacks already installed?

    I would use a step drill bit, and drill the hole to size from each side. A twist drill will grab when the point breaks through, and can cause the drill to wrench out of your hands.

    Those jacks are these:


    with a little moulded plastic border added. I would route the Pedaltrain slats out and just drill the holes for the screws on the corners of the jacks.
