I've got a desk that has a 16 + 7/8" tall space for a computer (that's 42.75 cm for the rest of the world). I want to fit a mac pro in there. For Mac Pro owners: What is the height of your mac pro without the handles? For handypeople: What kind of tools would I need for this job? I would be willing to bring it to someone with the tools and knowhow, but I would still like to know what you believe to be the best route to achieving a functional and aesthetically pleasing handle chop. A couple of people have done it, but there are really no step-by-step guides, or detailed pictures. See here and here.
