Hey I'm just wondering what is the best cutting tool do cuts on 360 cases that can do some clean cuts. preferably electric.
-thanks for reading-

most things can not cut straight smooth lines on the first cut. I have done many different methods, I have done a dremel with a ripping bit, a dremel with a drill bit, a soldering iron with a round head, a soldering iron with a razor edge. all of the things described still involved a lot of filing and sanding to achieve the edges you want. Unless you want to drop 5,000 dollars on a personal CnC mill.
The best for me is a Dremel with a small drill bit.

I have used the dremel and it gives good results. I mean sanding is still required but dremel is good.

everyone pretty much uses a dremel (can also be known as a rotary hobby tool kit)
nos33 - a small drill bit you say? hmm, i have yet to try that (have tried everything else you said). im modding a case pretty soon and might have to try that one out. thanks for the tip

I use a Dremel. Haven't tried anything else since it seems to be the tool of choice for most.

If you have access to one, I'd say a scroll saw.

@360 hAcKaH please read the sig rules one more time
I bought a 2speed dremel from radio shack for $15 it works great. Theres no way you will get around sand paper. Hobby knives are always a good thing too.

If you use a router then you can get extremely clean cuts. Probably works best for straight lines though but I used it the other day (for wood not plastic) and used it a few years ago in wood shop to make a hole for a speaker box.
