    Finished my seed starter, last of the rebuild before start of season. This does not require a water pump, I found a pump in the tote increases temps just a shade. Also does not plug at all.

    I have a set to punch out holes for gauges in aluminum, well to be more accurate. I had a set of punches for dashes to place gauges in, how ever my son "borrowed" them for his race car and damn if I have seen them since :-). I fully expect him to be rolling out my box in the next couple of years!

    As a man with what my mother called a tool fetish I admire that hole saw I have a set that goes from 1" to 3" but they are for wood. I really should stop being such a cheap bastard and buy one for cutting the holes for my baskets to set in. It just hit me I own a set of Greenly punches that might make a cleaner hole that the spade bit I currently use for the holes I put in the sides of my totes.

    I normally do something similar. I normally work in metal so the tools i have are a little more robust and I needed a 1 3/8 hole, I drilled from one side after establishing the center and then swapped around to finish cutting. Problem was I had tasted a little of the last tumble weed I grew and still had the drill in drill mode instead of reversing it for a cleaner cut... oh well, old tote is now a flower pot and new tote is in place.

    The first hole I drilled when learning to build a tote was rough or jagged around the edges like one you pictured. I used the spade bit on the left in the picture. I found with a piece of wood under where I drilling and using a spade bit like the one on the right in my picture it cut a much cleaner hole. The 2 keys to cutting clean hole were the board to help keep bit located and the little tips on outer edge of the spade bit which cut the outer edge of hole before removing the majority of plastic your removing.

    You did better than most, you were lying about an extra half inch instead of an extra half foot.😊
