Anybody happen to know a maker/part number for a cheap chassis punch
suitable for making the holes for the chassis mount PowerPole housings in
standard blank outlet covers?  I thinking of a few nice black-anodized
aluminum power panels in the ham shack, and maybe for the car, with
somewhat-standard-looking outlet plates in the other rooms.

Anderson may have them, but if they do one will probably cost a gazillion
dollars. A simple Power Pole crimping tool is so expensive it makes me reel
backwards.

You're better off buying the plates I guess. I suppose they could be trimmed
down a little to fit better on small housings.

I've wanted to buy a nibbler for years. That goes on my Christmas list. :-)

If you're pneumatically-enabled, that's an option worth considering.

RatShack sells a $0-$5 hand nibbler tool that works pretty good.

Works great for aluminium, nylon. shatters some plastics. wears out
(dulls) quickly when nibbling steel over 12 guage.
