@Max:

 

Yeah, that's me - I have whole series of stuff involving firearms.  That was a lucky shot, but I got about 3 or 4 on that day that are just beautiful.  This is the one I like the most.

 

I even caught the bullet comming down the barrel in a .45 pistol, too!

If you aren't already aware of them, you might like to know about Clecos: http://www.rivetsonline.com/cleco.html which are to sheet-metal working what pins are to dress-making. They're a temporary fastener to hold 2 pieces aligned together while they are drilled or riveted.

If you want a lot of holes evenly spaced, an adjustable rivet spacer is a alternative http://www.aircraftspruce.com/catalog/topages/rivspacer.php?clickkey=6495 to a sheet of perf-board, but whether the extra expense is justified would depend on how important regularity and particular spacing is.

I have a couple of "Rat files" that can make decent work of the ragged edges...

@ca94002...thanks for that.....I could easily have expanded this to two articles with all the other tools that commenters have given.  I have a leather punch and a hand reamer as you describe, so I should not have forgotten about them.  But then again, if I had covered everything I probably would not have got all these comments!

Good name -- it's akin to the tools used for trepanning, the technique of drilling a hole in people's skulls for treating various conditions.  Trepanning goes back to the Neolithic Era.
