Procedure:
1) Drill large hole in the same location as in the picture
2) make band saw cuts inward towards the hole

    How has it performed? Just curious, I'd have though aluminum too soft to hold up to this sort of thing.

    Yeah, cool, I guess I always forget that there are different grades and tempers of aluminum that make a huge difference (like any other metal). I always think of it as super soft since the aluminum wires I always work with are always super soft.
