    do u have a drill,can u borrow one? the hole saw is only like $15 and the arbor is another $10

    if u only need a 80mm hole the see the hole saws that size with a arbor

    I use a jig-saw. You have to have a bit of practice to make a good hole though.

    Take a 5 mm drill and drill holes all round . Then you sort of " cut " the remains out with the drillbit . Just smooth up the edges afterward . Not the best but I bet you can get your hands on a drill
    So softly , so perfect , seemingly sleepingly
    But for you , sleep , forever will do

    Hole saw. I like the one-piece ones without a separate arbor. I think it's McCoy and it's red. If you can gain access to a drill press, that's by far the best way to go. If not, you'll need a 1/2" drill motor. Use a low RPM with steady, medium pressure and hang on because it will bite. A few strokes with a half-round file will clean up the edges.

    A 3 1/2" saw can be used for 80 or 92mm fans.

    u can fit a 120mm on that,it just depends on the arbor size

    i have a 114mm and 76mm and they both fit on the same 3/8" arbor

    i bought everything from lowes except the 114mm,i didnt know they sold it

    u can get it here too

    I saw hole saws in the hardware store today

    I got U hooks to mount on top of my case to facilitate a carrying strap.

    I didn't get any hole saws though because no one was there to help me find the right arbor or whatever you use to attach the hole saw to a drill.
