-- Cleaning up the Mess

   Then proceed to make your cut following the line you drew. I used a couple of wood clamps to clamp the metal side to my workbench. This made for almost no vibration and very smooth cutting. I had to unclamp and move the metal side around a couple times so I wouldn't cut my workbench in half. :o) Using the jigsaw it only took me a couple minutes to cut out the entire hole.

Getting that Clean Cut Look   

   Next, using a file or deburring tool smooth off the edges both inside and out of the hole so you won't cut off any fingers or slice the rubber gasket on a sharp edge.

   After you get done filing down the edge you can go ahead and remove all the masking tape.

Scrape off those burrs
