Yep, as the previous poster said.

Search next time. There's a lot of nice installs on here to look at.

Dremel is probably best. You can easily make the precise cuts.

I like my lithium ion cordless model. The thing just keeps taking a beating and runs forever. Plenty powerful too.

Here's the one I have: Amazon.com: Dremel 8000-03 10.8-Volt Lithium Ion Cordless Rotary Tool: Home Improvement

I was checking this out the other day. I believe best buy carries a DDIN bracket for that years opening or the one newer so that you can fit those in without any worries while keeping the manufacturer look
