I need to make several, ten to be exact, 2.15" x 3" rectangular holes in a new control panel door, about 16 gauge thick. This is to mount some Red Lion, Cub5 counter/rate meters. Is there an inexpensive way to do this with out completely disassembling the panel door or buying a die and punch set (for this size the price from Greenlee is around $1k, not counting the manual hydraulic pump required). I could use a jigsaw with a metal blade, but I fear the cutting will be less than perfect. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance.
