    here is how I now do the holes in my Coro Board.
    Much faster and neater now.

    USE PLENTY OF VENTILATION.

    I drill through multiple sheets as melting melts them together then melt them out but still a slow process and found drilling always left a burr that had to be cut off.

    I used the 10mm hole punch out of this set from Bunnings. The 10mm worked perfectly for my 12mm Pixel nodes. Nice and snug with little chance of coming out easily.

    Necessity is the mother of invention. We all have our ways based on what we have and what we know... but can always learn by sharing. ;)

    I like the punch idea as this should leave a fairly tidy hole
