I know this info is out there but i was wondering, do you guys who have done this just cut your tower hole dead center or did you do the cornstarch trick to locate the lines first?

Thanks,
Al

If you drill right through the top there's nothing but insulation

I went dead-center too, with no problems. My dad had borrowed my set of hole-saws, so I used an electric scroll saw to cut the circle. Worked fine.

If you leave the door open for a few minutes and touch the top you can feel where the line is it gets pretty hot quickly and you know exactly where it is.

I did the cornstarch thing to be sure - dead center is fine. I cut a 2 3/4" hole.

I went dead center without the cornstarch and had no problems.
