Homegrown Mod Manifesto: How To Build A UV PC

Mounting The Switch In The Drive Bezel, Continued

First, we had to decide where we wanted to drill the hole in the bezel. We took some measurements of the bezel to determine where the center was and used an "X" to make the spot.

After taking all of the measurements, Jon marks the spot were we are going to drill the hole for the switch.

Next, we cut a piece of 2x4 to fit inside the cavity of the bezel to help keep panel level during the drilling process.

We already have cut the wood and have everything clamped down to get ready to drill.

Then, we secure the drive bezel to the drill press surface. If you choose to use a hand drill, this is the most important step because you don't want the bezel to move around while you are drilling it. Take special care to make sure of where your drill bit is going. We suggest that you always measure twice, and cut once.

Jon gets ready to get the drill moving.
