do you have a jigsaw? do any of your friends have a jigsaw? any of your friends dads have a jigsaw? do any of your dads friends have a jigsaw?
lol im just kiddin. but really a jigsaw with a GOOD metal-cutting blade (if your case is metal, if not get a plastic cutting blade) will be your best bet.
then you can get some edging for metal and !viola! professional hole.
What you do is clamp a piece of wood on the underside, so the pilot bit has a spot to go.

actually crazeD's idea will work, if you have the right clamp. a hole saw will make a nice, even circle for your fan.

I just noticed what a hole saw looks like and i have 2. well my parents do but i have a drill so i can do that. I have a clamp and all that.

I was using a dremel but too many sparks for my comfort.

I took a hole saw drill or whatever and cut the whole.

That is the link to the pics.

I did use the hole saw drill thing but instead of a wooden block i just drilled some holes for it and it worked excellent that way.

Thanx for all the help guys.
