27 May 05: Huge milestone today: the panel is cut! I emailed Pro Cutting my CAD files last night & dropped off the panel blank this morning. Charlie luckily had a spare few minutes to throw my panel on the water jet. Here's a photo he shot of my panel during the process.

Here's a photo of the finished panel.

The switches fit right in. One of the great things about cutting things with lasers or a water jet is the ability to have very fine detail for no extra cost. Most toggle switches have a small notch cut in one side of the threads. I drew a key in each of the switch holes. For my MS35058 switches, the keys are only 0.025" x 0.050", but they work great to keep the switches from rotating. This saves me from having to use the supplied washer key with the switches (they are ugly). I used 0.8" switch spacing (center to center). Easy!
