Along with cutting the holes it could do any kind of logo/design/script (in whatever font) your heart desires.
    He's about to learn why people just buy the rack from TSS.

    There's 100 holes in that picture. That's 100 to correctly mark, drill & debur. In a former life I built control panels for industrial plants. Every button hole had to be hole-sawed, knocked out with a hole punch then notched for the button and label to line up properly. We used the punch for the final diameter because of the rough edge the holesaw left. Those panels were not nearly as thick as the channel used on the SS racks. Electrical panel manufacturers these days will plasma cut all of the holes for a nominal fee before the panel is shipped to you. The labor & cost savings is night & day.

    They're called Annular Cutters or Hollow Core Cutters.
    We get them from McMaster Carr

    If you want the thrill of the welding / fabrication but not the hassle of the cutting finding a machine shop with a "metal worker" .aka "Piranna" or "Hole punch" would be my suggestion: Piranha Metal Fabrication Equipment by MegaFab | We Build Things That Build Things

    You can have them do westside or whatever other holes you want. Once the machine is set up they can punch it right out.
