    I was thinking about using a step drill bit, however I wasn't sure if the buttom washer that holds the 510 tight against the box would be big enough to not fall through the hole. I don't know if what I'm saying makes sense lol

    To countersink a 22mm 510 flat say 1mm you will need and end mill with a reduced shank or alike

    would a 7/8th end mill work? I want it to look almost professionally done

    22.25 mm is 7/8th there will be a tiny gap (some wise ass will tell you) but the width isn't the problem its the depth you need the metal to be true flat the end mill needs to be razor sharp and not skip plus you need the mill to line up with the hole you have already drilled for the Atty it's like patting your head whilst rubbing your tummy whilst talking to the wife and turning the telly over slowly, to deep and the Atty will be sunk so the top will scratch too shallow and it will leave a gap

    other than that its a piece of piss:D

    don't you just love mod making

    edit the pressure on the top of the case will be very great so be careful of that also.... sorry

    In short no

    You could take to an engineering company but this is hand work not CNC milling

    The operator needs to be skilled enough to do it by hand

    You could use a pillar drill but the chuck will only go up to 13mm so you would need a 16mm chuck or collect chuck them you need to drill by eye 1mm tricky

    Most people leave it on the top me includeded I do countersink some but it depends on how I feel.
    But on a box mod the pressure in that place from the cutter is great if it skips or is blunt the case is scrap

    The end cutting mill for a 22mm is about £50 quid

    So in short leave it on the top and say bollocks unless it really niggles you
