Mounting a fan would be necessary once more power was applied to the RFID module. This was clearly stated on the Sparkfun website and warned that the module would turn itself to low-power mode if the module overheated. A PVC electrical enclosure was purchased so it could be drilled easily.

To drill the hole pattern correctly, a sticky label larger than the base was placed on a mouse pad. The screws in the standoffs from the module were pressed onto the label so they made marks on the label which, naturally, corresponded to the screw locations. After the indentations were made, I should have used a pen to mark the centers of the screw dents.

Making dents in a sticky label

The same sticky labels were used to make a template for the fan mounting holes. Instead of making indents in the paper, a pen cartridge was taken out of a pen, so it would be slender, and used to mark through the mounting holes. Gel pen ink runs when applied to this kind of paper so clear tape was applied over the ink spots.

Making a pattern for the fan mounting holes

Small holes were drilled for the mounting spots and large holes were drilled for the fan and exhaust. Two more holes were drilled to mount the display but there weren't any fancy techniques used for marking those holes. A step drill bit was used to make the large fan holes.

Not a tabernacle, but a holey box
