Re: Chassis Questions
Mathew,  
 
In addition to the chassis punches that Ray mentioned, I use a "unibit". It is a stepped drill bit for drilling holes of various sizes. I usually use a chassis punch for knocking out holes for tube sockets, and the unibit for drilling holes for switches and starter holes for the chassis punch draw bolt. There are several different sizes of unibits having different graduations for drilling holes. The unibit works much better than the HSS drill bits I was using. The one I got cost about $40 at Eagle Hardware, which is about the cost of a chassis punch.  
 
Hope this helps.
