Anyone know of any good case cutting techniques? Specifically for the button holes and that sort of thing. I don't have any machines that'll do the work for me so I have to do it with hand tools. I can't seem to cut holes accurately and evenly so that's why I ask.
Thanks

Use a power drill + drill bits that are the same size as the buttons you are looking to cut.

Ah, did not think of that. But are you saying that they make bits the exact same size as each of the buttons?

If the hole you want to make is large enough, a Dremel with a small cutting makes good straight cuts. You can smooth out the cuts with a flat file.

I've decided the best way will be to draw out the button holes first, drill them out (as Noah had suggested), then use a round or flat file depending on the button. Thanks for the help. :)
