What kind of drill for pedal enclosures?

You also need to center punch the location. Your drill bit will try to wander around the surface, rather than staying where you want the hole.

 

Didn't tink of that thanks!

 

How powerfull should I go? I don't need a drill for anything else so I would be buying it just for this. Anyone know if a machineshop or any other place may do this for a fee?

I's just gonna say that you can e-mail Kirk at www.pedalpartsplus.com and he can do a pre-drilled enclosure for you.

 

Highly recommended.

I was just at his site looking at the orange enclosure for the VD1 if all went well with the first round. Will he do one offs? I thought he only did multiples.

I might add to this that I once got my set designer friend and his wonderful hand drill to drill my enclosure, and it ended up looking like swiss cheese.

 

Also the man above me has done a couple of boxes for me and I can vouch for him knowing what he talks about.

One other item. The harder the metal the slower your drill bit speed should be. Aluminium fairly fast/ titanium very slow.

 

I know there are no titanium boxes. I just used it as an example.

:p
