    I was wondering if anyone had tried the nibbler from xoxide.com as a cheap alternative to a dremel or jigsaw for cutting small things like blowholes? if so how is it? :confused:

    Shame ya didn't supply a link but I'd rather use a jigsaw as I've found nibblers slow and in some areas useless.

    If you're referring to the small square on the front, that's the nibbler itsself.

    The nibbler works well as it has a high amount of cutting power for small jobs. It's good for cutting off tabs, card brackets that are too long, or basically any small part of sheet metal/aluminum on a case. But outside of small jobs, it's essentially useless. The nibbler's head isn't extended enough to cut a standard nail or screw, so the largest thing you can hope to cut is sheet metal.

    I'm with wiggo: For big jobs, do a little jiggin'

    And for those blowholes, take wiggo's other recommendation: 3" Holesaw.

    for the blowhole you should stick with the holesaw, but the nibbler would be good for any little job you do, they sell it at compusa now for 10 bucks
