    Multipro Cordless 9.6v Model 760

    is that model any good....

    ok so where do i start cutting holes in my case and stuffs ?

    I want to cut a blowhole on the side of the case...
    I don't think I can do it "freehand" is there a type of attachment I can get for teh dremel or what?

    u can get them at lowes

    just buy some heavy duty grinding disks and a sanding block for the dremel and cut away,the use a sanding block and clean everything up.

    got lowes or home depot and look at the attachments

    I used a drmel for my holes... I simply put a screw in the center of the hole I want to cut, use a string and guide it that way

    Hey, don't take back the dremel. You can find a million uses for it once you start thinking about it. Wish I had one. I've almost bought 1 a thousand times.

    I actually bought it for a project I'm working on for work...

    then I realized it's a perfect opportunity to carve my case up

    Bala, dremel's rule.......and it's not hard to cut a hole in your case with one...just slow.....take your time. and a grill will cover any imperfections.

    I love mine....I use it for all kinds of things.. carving things out of wood, polishing small objects...stuff on my bikes.....
    The tools of conquest do not necessarily come with bombs and explosions and fallout. There are weapons that are simply thoughts, attitudes, and prejudices to be found only in the minds of men. For the record, prejudices can kill and suspicion can destroy and a thoughtless, frightened search for a scapegoat has a fallout all of its own for the children and the children yet unborn and the pity of it is that these things cannot be confined to the Twilight Zone.

    I have two dremels, one variable speed and a fixed speed one. I LOVE mine. Play with it all the time. Go to Sears, they have a knock-off version(really a dremel, but with Craftsman stickers) and have tons of attachments for em. I'm wanting the extension myself, looks like a nice add on.

    hmmm...
    well I started cutting some..

    but as it is 2am and my sis woke up I gotta work on it some more tommorow...
    If I put a fan right above my CPU in the side panel of the case (I have a Socket A Athlon 1.4ghz).
    Should it be exhausting air or pulling air in?

    thanks..
    I still hadn't gotten around to cutting it yet..
    but I will post pics after it's finished...

    I was thinking about painting my case as well...
    but it seems like it's not an easy task...
    wet sand, dry sand, this and that..
    funk that...
