Shall I get a 10 dollar "nibbler" (intimidating name, I dare not utter it aloud, but typing is "ok")
or just stick with my 95$ Dremel, but have to go buy a 20$ accessory kit to get a nice # of disks and other accessories I need anyways?
also...

EDIT! Perhaps a combination of the two!!!! I use chalk with a compass (black case) and i nibble out to about 77mm or so, so that the chalk is still visible, then i use my dremel grinder to smooth it out, then a wire thingy to make it nice!<P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by KeeperHET on 04/19/05 01:36 AM.</EM></FONT></P>

You will always have a consumables cost. Blades get dull, discs break, pieces wear down.

A corded Dremel should be fine for 99% case modding. Shop Sam's Club/COSTCO for those $19 accessory kits. I bought one with about 300 discs/stones/etc. and still have plenty to go through.

Nibblers do cause minor warping at the edge of the cut. Heck, you'd might as well clamp the sheet between a couple boards and use a jigsaw...

Just buy a hole saw (Im assuming you want to cut fan holes) I cut 2x120mm holes in the top of my case with a junior hack saw..I would not recommend it.
