For an electronics project I'm using an ABS plastic enclosure. I've got a nice handheld drilling machine, but no saw. I need to make some holes in this material, I can do small circular holes with that drill.
But what for kind of drill bits do I need? Are wood drills fine? And for square holes, I was thinking of making four circular holes but I need a saw to do the rest. What kind do i need?
>>935894 The square holes are quite bigger than what most drill bits can do so I was thinking about a small saw like a fretsaw, but I think those saws are too thin and breakable to get through plastics.
I will look for those kinds of saws at the hardware store tomorrow.
>>935888 Remember to do all the drilling really slow, if you don't the plastic will melt and make the holes look bad. As of the square holes, you can use a sheet metal neebler (pic related), I use it all the time for cutting plastic and metal and it works really great.
