When modification of a unit includes drilling holes in its steel chassis, the following trick can often save trouble that might follow after the modification is made. Insert a small magnet under the area to be drilled and, if possible, inside the chassis. The magnet will catch the steel shavings which might otherwise collect in spots and endanger the original circuitry.
