Mounting instruments in cockpit bulkhead
Replacing 4.5 inch dead instruments with something requiring 5 and 1/16th diameter hole. Anyone have any suggestions on making this happen?
The notion of using a gigantic hole cutter on a power drill scares the hell of of me. Plus, I have nothing for the bit (as in, the center guide bit) to sink into, thereby ensuring that my 5" cutter doesn't go awry.
Debating the jig saw route as another option. That, followed by sanding bit on drill, perhaps?
