so what do you guys use to drill out the hole for your cups? is it possible to use a jig saw?

Well if they're small enough you can use a hole saw kit. Those usually go up to like 2". Or a router...

You can get a cheap hole saw kit at Harbor Freight for like 5$ provided your terminal cups are both round and not huge.

Yeah just remember when your trying to drill it out that your probably going to have to go in from both sides. The first time I used mine it got like 1/2 way in and just stopped and I couldn't figure out why, it was because my hole saws were only like 1/2" deep, and of course it was 3/4" wood...so yeah, just go as far as you can one way, then drill the rest from the inside.
