Subject: MOTM Panel Template

Anybody know how to weld? I was thinking that what someone could design
would be a steel block with "cleats" on it, like nail heads or something,
sticking out of it at MOTM grid spacing.

Then all that needs doing is to place the block on top of the panel, which
is backside up, and whack it with a hammer to make the grid indentations in
the aluminum blank. Then just drill out the holes you need.

Personally, I don't need this since my little spring loaded punch works just
fine and takes less than a minute to put the starter indents on a whole
panel, but there seems to be a lot of interest in this pre-gridded panel.
