Re: My µBITX in its new home

David Wilcox <Djwilcox01@...>

Don't all home brewers have a Dremel tool with an assortment of cutting blades and grinding bits to smooth out the rough edges. I couldn't live without them. I use mine for home repairs, car repairs and everything radio. I first discovered their utility in my medical practice. I had many elderly patients with bunions, callouses and thick toe nails that interfered with foot health and comfort. Many of them couldn't afford to see the podiatrist so I set up a vacuum cleaner that the patient held in place and while we were kibitzing I ground away with my Dremel..... Made some friends and had some fun. When I retired I had four Dremels and many different grinding tools. Had to buy a cutting wheel or two for the radio room. Thought everyone would get a laugh from this. (I started out as a country GP and had to do it all. There were no specialists close.)

Care to share your technique?
My uBITXs should show up any day now! On my BITX40, I
used a cutting wheel in a rotary tool, cutting the opening
slightly undersize, and then used a file to even it up
a bit and make it large enough. It worked well, but I won't
know until the next one if I just got lucky or if it will
be easy every time. I don't have any bezels.
