While these FireBird Recessed Charge Wells seem expensive, consider the combined cost of a conventional charge well, the cost of the bulkhead sealing device and the terminal block along with the fact that these are just COOL!

For drilling the required 7/8" holes in your bulkhead, use a paddle drill for plywood and a diamond hole saw for fiberglass. Both of these type drills can be found at your local hardware store.
For your convenience, Tinder Rocketry offers two types of diamond hole saws for cutting fiberglass or carbon fiber. The fancy one has a carbide centering drill for more precise drilling, both work well.
