Here is what I want to do:

If I were to use a dremel, is there anywhere where I can rent one maybe? I do not have much money e_e so if I can get it done with a jigsaw that would be awesome.


But is there any alternative tools I could use to do this? Give me a list of any tools (possibly) needed.

A jig should work with the proper metal cutting blade... You will need a drill as well if you are going to use a jig. You will want some metal files to deburr the edges where you cut.

The dremel is actually the preferred tool because it cuts and has sanding attachments to smooth the cuts. Dremels have lots of other handy uses too (I sharpened a lawn mowers blades with mine a couple summers ago). It might be worth it to you to invest in one.

Rough cut inside the lines and finish it up with a lot of filing and sanding.

I actually prefer jig to dremel for most work. Then I also use dremel bits (or larger vesions that are similar to dremel bits) in a cordless drill at slower speeds for the cleanup.

Don't forget to tape around the cutting area so the base of the jigsaw doesn't scratch up the surface. Also don't forget to post pics of the finished work.

Do you plan on backing those cut-outs with anything, like some colored acrylic?

P.S. Depending on the job, I may also use shears for metal working.
