Thanks Peter, I'll give it a go.

How? Diamond needle files. A bit better control than the little drill guide. You can test each hole along the way with a spoke and only remove as much material as needed. But it is slow going.

Why? I have the proper DT New Aero spokes on hand already. Definitely cheaper than buying Aerolites. Also, the front is already done with New Aeros, and I like the added stiffness (as a former track sprinter)...
