What size mounting holes do you guys drill for the 3PDT button and for the audio jacks? ??? I'm sure this has been answered, so sorry

You need a glade plug-in, in on a footswitch.  Kick on the big muff, then hit the air freshener pedal.

For the stomp switch 1/2" is OK and for the jacks it depends on the style:

For switchcraft types is 3/8" to 7/16" (other brands may be a little more or a little less, but within the range)

For plastic types (Marshall style) is 7/16" to 1/2"

Treat yourself to a unibit type drill bit. Great for drilling enclosures so you don't have to keep changes bit for each different hole.

If it ain't broke...   ...it will be soon.

+1 I have always used a unibit from early on. But then I didn't really know the sizes I was drilling. Thanks for the info!

That's the one I use too. So if you don't know the size of the hole you're about to drill just drill a hole one size at a time and check if it fits, if it don't, drill to the next drill size until you find the correct one.
