    What a good idea. Very clean looking too... for now lol. The grease from those fryers will turn his handiwork into a glob of brown snot in no time at all.

A dremel would speed it up, but mine broke years ago and i havent bothered to replace, plus dremel cutting discs are basically one time use before worn out.

    When looks dont matter and speed is important, or on thicker material, an angle grinder is much quicker. Its a lot easier to screw up with this method though - one slip of the grinder will leave an ugly gash. And still you gotta deal with the small sides - a 4.5" angle grinder wont do it, though Dremel prob would, but its hard not to overcut and nick the corners and whatnot.

    If it wont be seen at all, several times i've used these angled brackets that come with the Johnson control pressure switches we stock on our truck. I mount it in a vise, use my milwaukee HackZall and quickly cut the rectangle - it fits in the predrilled holes perfectly. I bend the cut piece out, then cut it off. This leaves an open rectangle on one side. Then i take some of the scrap and weld silver solder the side back closed. Its REALLY ugly, but quick. 5 minutes with little physical effort exerted. Ill try to get pics next time.

    Very nice work. I like how you added the cover over the new digital controller. Obviously it would have been covered in grease in no time. Nice work
