    Any local machine shop should be able to do it. Or you may be able to find a used one with the right sized hole on ebay or possibly KEH. Getting a hole enlarged on a used board is possible too.

    Machine shop. Yes. didn't cross my mind. Thanks.

    I've been looking for a used board with the right hole without any luck. I'll have to pick up another board soon.

    Thanks.

    I'm having a friend print me one of these and I'll try my hand at drilling a ~50mm hole.

    edit: also pinged the designer to see if he can make a custom edit for me.

    A board with a smaller hole + a file + a few minutes work = what you need. In those famous words "It ain't brain surgery."

    1) getting the board. I might not get it by this weekend at this point.
    2) I may not have the right tools needed
    3) With both sides of parents, from out of town, coming over this weekend and staying with us, I have no time. :smile:
