"I just need some tips on what cutting bit I works best in a Dremel for cutting this relatively thin steel."

I've made 20+ lock boxes using steel 60 amp A/C disconnect boxes. The first I tried cutting with a Dremel and quickly realized that was not the way to do it; ever since I've used my scroll saw with a 10 or 20 tpi wood cutting blade. Usually I can do two boxes before the blade gets so dull it won't cut a straight line or breaks -- the blades are cheap and cut the steel really quickly, so if you have a scroll saw try it.

For 3D camo on all the boxes I use Loctite premium construction adhesive; it hardens overnight and then I paint the camo with a mix of Rustoleum camo dark brown, green and tan.


Thanks for the tip. I may have to dust off my scroll saw and give it a try.
