    No, sorry.... I was taught my sheet metal skills by my father, who restored and customized Classic cars as a hobby.

    Here are some photos of the Roper Whitney No. 5 Jr Hand Punch kit being used for making fan screw mounting holes. The tool is available here

    So Ok, What is the cheapest method for cutting your case panels? A Metal Nibbler works, but it can be very time consuming approach

    only $7.95, from performance-pcs, http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...oducts_id=3044

    The ideal set up is this 40 watt "Soldering Station" by Weller (WLC100) $56.99 on Newegg

    It hold your wand, for safety sake! You can adjust the Wattage. You can clean it on the included sponge, which rids the tip of oxidation that builds up on its surface, which accumulates rather rapidly and becomes a corrosive agent that will eventually eat away at the tip and ruin it.




    This WELLER 8200 is the type of Solder Gun I grew up with... A built-in light to illuminate your work, and heats up very quick with 100 - 140-Watts of heat.

    I really need to start practicing soldering. Hopefully on something unimportant before I work on anything expensive

    Awesome! Glad to hear you liked everything!

    @xeromist, I find most of my soldering work is on cooling fan wires. I'm either adding or shortening them...lol

    This Blazer SI-100 Excalibur Multi purpose Butane Solder Wand / Torch Kit is pretty cool! It's great for mobility and has several different attachments for a variety of tasks. You can also reach tight spaces and be used for heat shrinking cooling fan wires and custom sleeved PSU cables. The only downside is you have to periodically refuel it with Butane Listed on Amazon
