Hole size for Fender pilot light?
To all:  
Can anyone remember (I can't!) off the top of their head what the correct hole size (5/8?) is for a standard Fender pilot light assembly? I have some on order and I want to get my chassis prepped before it arrives.  
Thanks for the help!

Had one laying around and used my circle templet. 11/16" was the best fit, very little play, but I would take that out for tolerance for a pencil thickness. That's the answer I'm going with.  
Book Of The Day The Ultimate Tone, Volume III by Kevin O'Connor
Have you ever wondered if there is a better way to build a Bassman, Champ, Plexi, an 800, AC-30, Bulldog or Portaflex? Or you wanted to build an SVT with off-the-shelf parts? How about a master-volume amp that doesn’t change tone with the master setting? Everything you need to know is right here, including: proper grounding techniques, wiring methods, and mechanical considerations. Eighteen chapters cover the “iconic” amps everyone knows and loves, with schematics and layouts for each, along with the technical history of the product. Eyelet-board and chassis-mounted tube socket construction is used throughout, for easy servicing and modding. TUT3 is very accessible even if you cannot fully read a schematic and is a "must have" if you are going to build an amp for your self.
