Step 5: Drilling Holes

Picture of Drilling Holes
Since this is a guitar effects pedal and requires holes for the controls and the audio jacks, I usually mark the holes and drill once the surface has been completed.

Here you see a template printed on clear mylar with the position of the various elements that are to be added during final construction.

Wow! You're the AMZ from Muzique.com! You've been filling my head with powerful knowledge for years now!! Thanks infinity+1!!
What program, may I ask, did you use to generate that clear template? Do you happen to make PCB layouts with it as well? I'm trying to find the right program for these purposes. The paint job looks fantastic! I will certainly follow this technique next time. Thanks!
