    What I meant was the saw was intended for woodworking... Anyway I have an aluminum case, but my dad knows an uber-1337 woodworker dude that made my bro's swordcase, and my dad said his coworker (AKA uber-1337 w00dz0r h4x0r) could make me a pc case if I gave him specifications, but I said **** it and just bought the al. one.

    Are you sick of poor quality 128k mp3's that sound inferior to regular CD's you buy in the store? Do you long for the exact sound of a CD with absolutly no quality loss, and at practically half the size of a normal CD? CD's get scratched all the time, and FLAC is great for archiving all those good copies of your classic rock, and backing them up to save forever. FLAC unlike mp3, or ogg vorbis is what is called a lossless format. This means that no quality whatsoever is lost from the origianl disk. Lossy formats such as ogg vorbis, wmv, and moreover mp3 are usually flat sounding, and full of hissing and dullness because they discard and literally throw out important information that controls how good the CD will sound. Using FLAC will ensure the crystal-clear clarity that you can expect from a freshly opened CD. Instead of flimsy CD cases that snap and CD's that scratch easily, and are inevitably summoned to a poor scratched up death; FLAC files can be stored in a tough metal box known as your Hard Disk. FLAC putting life back into digital audio. If you own legit copies of CD's and seek for them pre-FLAC'd for all your digital listening needs please shoot me a PM for more information.

    actually that's wrong.

    it's a common misconception... but uber is actually german for "over".

    thopught i'd post this here seeing its virtually the same thing.
    I wanted to buy a holesaw because it just seemed easier and cheaper. But Bunnings didnt have anything over the size of 63mm i need a 80mm one. also they said that they would only work on wood...? is this the case or is it able to go through plastic (front bezel) and steel 1-3mm thick. so whats the story? or should i just use a dremel or soemthing.
    Sorry to steal the thread sorta...

    I got mine from Bunnings, one of the blue bi-metal ones, 76mm (3") as the hole will wind up at 78-79mm (bi-metal ones are best as they'll cut thru 1mm thick steel with ease).

    As a professional carpenter I will tell you this: Don't get anything BUT a bi-metal holesaw. A standard steel holesaw's teeth will flatten if you try to drill steel with it. The salesman was telling the truth. I've been stuck on a jobsite several times with only cheap holesaws and burned them up on a steel door. The attachment was a pilot bit that keeps it centered.
    One more note: Typically, larger holesaws are 1/2" drive, so you'll need a drill with a 1/2" chuck and variable speed so you can go SLOWLY. :thumb: :cheers:

    Good suggestion! My uncle is also a carpenter, but I wouldn't consider him pro, just more than decent. His work is pretty damn good, but it takes AGES. We are talking like years lol.
